Maybe God is all-embracing...

I think He lets everyone into The Shack, whether they want to go or not.

Don't be afraid of the dark places in your life, or of the times when God takes you there...

What is the difference
Between your experience of Existence
And that of a saint?

The saint knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God

And that the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move

That the saint is now continually
Tripping over Joy
And bursting out in Laughter
And saying, "I surrender!"

Whereas, my dear,
I am afraid you still think
You have a thousand serious moves. (Hafiz)
