Is the Mystical Life for You?
Perhaps a life of contemplation is for you …
Even if only for a few seconds here and there, it is possible to take a deep breath, relax, be fully present to the silence that lies beneath our mental clutter, and just be. Indeed, one of the key purposes behind contemplative silence is to foster the ability to catch glimpses of the silence — silence that is always present beneath the noise within us. With time and by the grace of God, we learn to rest in the silence for longer moments.
