Is the Mystical Life for You?
Perhaps a life of contemplation is for you …
God is a God of love, therefore, God is a God of possibility. Indeed, more than once the Bible declares that with God, all things are possible. For contemplatives, the infinite possibilities of Divine love represent the always-new promise of a life filled with joy, purpose, and meaning, even in the face of loss, suffering, illness, or death. Really, the only obstacle to the freedom and joy that comes from God is our own selves! Contemplation, therefore, is an invitation to freedom — to getting out of our own way and getting out of God’s way in order to create the space within us for the transforming, healing, loving, creative activity of the Holy Spirit to be born within us.
