Wherever we come alive

I believe I have told you before that I had the privilege of hearing David Steindl-Rast speak at an interfaith conference back in the early 70s. He was riveting. I don't remember any other speaker from that occasion but Br. David was simply unforgettable:

Sometimes people get the mistaken notion that spirituality is a separate department of life, the penthouse of existence. But rightly understood, it is a vital awareness that pervades all realms of our being... Wherever we may come alive, that is the area in which we are spiritual.

-- Br. David Steindl-Rast
