"Nothing good or creative emerges from business as usual. This is why much of the work of god is to get people into ‘liminal space‘ and to keep them long enough so they can learn something essential. It is the ultimate teachable space…maybe the only one. Most spiritual giants try to live lives of ‘chronic liminality’ in some sense. they know it is the only position that insures ongoing wisdom, broader perspective and ever-deeper compassion."
