Fox is giving the hounds of the status quo a run for their money with this effort. He is a one man encyclopedia where matters of the unity of religions is concerned. He points out the need for ecumenism to bridge the fundamentalist gaps between us. Fox demonizes no one though he points out the danger of forcing one's theology on others. His is the imaginative voice of one crying out in the wilderness. The voice of silent meditation brought to the written page. His book is inspiring at a time when the world needs all the inspiration it can get. One River is the underground river of living water that is the common source of all spiritual wisdom. The Kingdom of God is up in the sky. No. It is within the human heart, the Holy of Holies. Fox goes on to point out that to meditate is to dig a sacred well. That we need no middle man. All mystics are revolutionaries. Made in the image of God we are gods for it takes a god to worship God (Mine). That anything that brings us into a relationship with our core is a type of yoga. So find something creative to do and stick with it. If we have faith the size of a mustard seed we can change the world. We can change the current myth of terror into the myth of joy. So keep up the good fight for there is plenty of work to do. Love and Peace.
