the gift of solitude...

Flower of Life Meditation Zafu
 ~ Thomas Merton
 "Today more than ever,
we need to recognize
 that the gift of solitude
is not ordered to the acquisition 
of strange contemplative powers,
but first of all 
to the recovery of one's deep self,
and to the renewal of an authenticity
which is twisted out of shape
by the pretentious routines 
of a disordered togetherness."
