Richard's Daily Meditations

Seven Underlying Themes of Richard Rohr's Teachings

First Theme: Scripture as validated by experience, and experience as validated by Tradition, are good scales for one’s spiritual worldview (Methodology).

You Are What You Are Seeking

Meditation 23 of 57

The perennial philosophy, or perennial tradition, is going to be the undergirding of the Rohr Institute’s Living School, which we hope will expose people to the great Wisdom Tradition, based also in Christianity in its own concrete form and vocabulary of incarnation. The Perennial Tradition includes a recurring theme in all of the world’s religions and philosophies. They continue to say, each in their own way:

  • There is a Divine Reality underneath and inherent in the world of things.
  • There is in the human soul a natural capacity, similarity, and longing for this Divine Reality.
  • The final goal of all existence is union with this Divine Reality.
