AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Overflow.


The time for contemplation is the spring that feeds our action,
and our action will be as deep as the spring.
We need time to allow the spirit to clear the obstacles
– the clinging debris and mud –
that keeps the spring from flowing freely from its clear,
deep source. And we need time for the spring to
overflow into insightful and compassionate action.

Thomas Merton
