Is the Mystical Life for You?
Perhaps a life of contemplation is for you …
Our journey is an inner journey — we are seeking not something far away or beyond ourselves, but something found inside our own hearts. Love and silence are the keys to open the hidden places of the heart, and whatever else we need to take with us are simply variations of those two essentials. A proverb from the Focolare movement (an ecumenical Christian movement known for its outreach to persons of other faiths) sums up what is required for the contemplative path: “Take nothing for the journey; all you need do is to love in each present moment.”
