(About Curiosity, Relationship)

Once you have hierarchy you need rules to protect and administer it, and then you need law and the enforcement of the rules, and you end up with some kind of chain of command or system of order that destroys relationship rather than promotes it. Hierarchy imposes laws and rules and you end up missing the wonder of relationship that we intended for you.

("The Shack")


More Quotes from W. Paul Young:


It's quite simple really. Being always transcends appearance-that which only seems to be. Once you begin to know the being behind the very pretty or very ugly face, as determined by your bias, the surface appearances fade away until they simple no longer matter. That is why Elousia is such a wonderful name. God, who is the ground of all being, dwells in, around, and through all things-ultimately emerging as the real-and appearances that mask that reality will fall away.
W. Paul Young

Authority, as you usually think of it, is merely the excuse the strong use to make others conform to what they want.
W. Paul Young

Since there were three of them, maybe this was a Trinity sort of thing. But two women and a man and none of them white?

It is so easy to get sucked into the if-only game, and playing it is a short and slippery slide into despair.
W. Paul Young

God's voice had been reduced to paper, and even that paper had to be moderated and deciphered by the proper authorities and intellect.
W. Paul Young

Don't forget that in the midst of all your pain and heartache, you are surrounded by beauty, the wonder of creation, art, your music and culture, the sounds of laughter and love, of whispered hopes and celebrations, of new life and transformation, of reconciliation and forgiveness.
W. Paul Young
