seeds of contemplation...

New Seeds of Contemplation

"There is an irreducible opposition 
between the deep transcendent self 
that awakens only in contemplation, 
and the superficial, external self 
which we commonly identify with the first person singular. 
Our reality, our true self, 
is hidden in what appears to us to be nothingness....
We can rise above this unreality 
and recover our hidden reality.... 
God Himself begins to live in me 
not only as my Creator 
but as my other and true self.”
 ~Thomas Merton
