“The experience of spiritual emergency is like a birth pang in which you yourself go through to a fuller life, a deeper life,
in which some areas in your life that were not yet encompassed by this fullness of life are now challenged to be integrated….Breakthroughs are often very painful, often acute and dramatic.
Breakthroughs ( happen)
on all levels: what we call material, spiritual, bodily – all levels.”
--David Steindl-Rast, 1985 [quoted in
