For the Contemplatives, Without and Within
For the Contemplatives – Without and Within
We need to rediscover and reclaim Spirituality for the Contemplatives.
The Contemplatives that are around us; in quiet corners of silent rooms, in dim lit caves in foreign lands; in green moist jungles and in cathedrals of forest groves.
Yet we also need to rediscover and reclaim Spirituality for the Contemplative that is within us; dwelling deeply beyond the surface level surging of worldly issues and concerns, fears and frustrations, fictions and fantasies.
If we leave no room, no place, no space; no-where, no when, no why and no worth, for the Contemplatives; then we lose something so vital and precious for our humanity and ourselves.
In a world increasingly attracted and distracted, distressed and depressed by material gain and gloat; we so much need the Stillness, Silence and Spaciousness for inner Reflection and Contemplation, Insight and Understanding, Spiritual Revelation and Realisation.
It is the Contemplatives, outside us and within us, that can take the Spiritual to a level that can transform and heal our humanity, our self and our world.
