This post will look at how it becomes increasingly impossible to connect with others, ourselves or God when we are constantly running around the edge of the wheel instead of being centred in the middle. We are a circumference people with little access to the centre – Rohr.
Jesus made a way for us all to connect with God. It was no longer vertical access by the elite few. He added to the Shema, what we call the the two great knowings (Rohr): to know God and to know ourselves. The Shema prayer was so influential and important that Jesus used it as the beginning of His answer to the “greatest commandment” question in Mark 12:28–30
