A Contemplative Faith
Let the Earth Keep Silence
Follow PatheosProgressive Christian:
In actual fact, contemplation is not the reward of a virtuous life; it is a necessity for a virtuous life.
— Thomas Keating, Intimacy with God
Amen, Father Thomas!
I could generalize that one step further and say that (for me–which is always safe to say!) contemplation is necessary for a whole, healthy, integrated, complete (etc. etc.) life, across the board.
But now that I think about it, you probably include all those adjectives and more in your classical definition of the term “virtuous” (in context) anyway…
