Generosity in quotes

“No one longs for what he or she already has, and yet the accumulated insight of those wise about the spiritual life suggests that the reason so many of us cannot see the red X that marks the spot is because we are standing on it. The treasure we seek requires no lengthy expedition, no expensive equipment, no superior aptitude of special company. All we lack is the willingness to imagine that we already have everything we need. The only thing missing is our consent to be where we are.”

Barbara Brown Taylor, Butman Professor of Religion at Piedmont College, Episcopal priest, fabulous preacher, and prolific writer, from Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith
