A Contemplative Faith
Let the Earth Keep Silence
Follow Patheos Catholic:
A blog called Religious Compass Exchanges has just published a wonderful essay by Jeffrey J. Kripal “on the paradoxical pedagogy of mysticism.” Click here to read it.
Author of Befriending Silence, The Big Book of Christian Mysticism, Answering the Contemplative Call, and other books. Retreat leader. Speaker. Professed Lay Cistercian.
Kripal is a bit of a deconstructionist when it comes to mysticism, but he is always an entertaining and insightful read.
And the “red pill” and “blue pill” metaphor from the Matrix is indeed absolutely brilliant.
