“We are all starved for the glory of God, not self. No one goes to the Grand Canyon to increase self-esteem. Why do we go? Because there is greater healing for the soul in beholding splendor than there is in beholding self.”— John Piper

我們都對上帝的榮耀極度饑渴。沒有人是為了增強自尊心而去參觀大峽谷。我們為什麼去呢?因為參摩壯麗的輝煌璀璨,終究比參酌自我來的更能讓心靈得著康復。

–約翰派普爾

你說呢?禪修道學裡不是都注重往內參查而獲自由嗎?但我們的靈魂裡就是追求比我們的自我更絢麗更耀眼的大榮耀。這就是我們與生俱來對永恆對完美對愛,對上帝的追求。這是我們自身無法滿足的,唯有望外,不管是大自然大歷史大社會大智慧,都要我們謙卑下來向外參習才能昇華。
