"As my prayers became more
attentive and inward I had less and less to say. I finally became completely
silent. I started to listen-which is even further removed from speaking.
I first thought that prayer entailed speaking. I then learnt that prayer
is hearing, not merely being silent. That is how it is. To pray does
not mean to listen to oneself speaking. Prayer involves becoming silent,
and being silent, and waiting until God is heard."
-- Soren Kierkegaard
God in all things,
For God is in all things.
Every single creature is full of God
And is a book about God.
Every Creature is a word of God.
If I spent enough time with the
tiniest creature -
Even a caterpillar -
I would never have to prepare a sermon. So full of God
Is every creature.
-- Meister Eckhart
Let the still quiet that fills the
Hermitage Cottage fill you. Make use of our contemplative texts. Walk
in the garden, contemplating, internalizing, waiting on God. What you'll
hear will astound you.
