God is All . . . In All.

 

A reminder from Thomas Merton

Let me seek, then, the gift of silence, and poverty, and solitude,

where everything I touch is turned into prayer . . .

 

 

where the sky is my prayer . . .

      • We are working on real time. I hit the send button by accident while writing about Frankl and logotherapy. I just wanted to say I’m writing a blog about “Man’s Search for Meaning,” and related thoughts. Planning to give you credit for reminding me of the book and prompting me to re-read it. It seems especially pertinent today, what with the seeming loss of meaning in current affairs.

        Regarding your latest post tonight, I have to say I live a life in Thomas Merton’s spirit, living as close to nature as possible, a material minimalist, because nature is free, wastes nothing, and is infinitely varied. Humanland just doesn’t compare.
