Quote from Bernadette Roberts
"I'm always reluctant to use the word 'God'
because everybody seems to carry around
his own stagnant images and definitions
that totally cloud the ability to step outside a narrow,
individual frame of reference.
If we have any conception of what God is,
certainly it should be changing and expanding
as we ourselves grow and change.
This is the very nature of our life's movement:
to expand, to open up, and blossom...
Whatever we care to call the ultimate reality,
we cannot define or qualify it
because the brain is incapable of processing this kind of data;
thus, we must ever look upon words
as mere descriptions of a man's experience --
the nature of which we do not really know."
-Bernadette Roberts, Roman Catholic Mystic
