evening light -

I am beginning to feel more here, and to begin to get organized, and sort through the piles of things to do.   It didn't seem like I was gone that long, but, then, again, I was.


THE REALITY THAT is present to us and in us:
call it being … Silence.
And the simple fact that by being attentive,
by learning to listen
(or recovering the natural capacity to listen)
we can find ourself engulfed in such happiness
that it cannot be explained:
the happiness of being at one with everything
in that hidden ground of Love
for which there can be no explanations….
May we all grow in grace and peace,
and not neglect the silence that is printed
in the centre of our being.
It will not fail us.

Thomas Merton
