Quote, Equus Passage 7/16

We are all on a journey, mine is as a Benedictine Oblate. Not until a friend, Elizabeth Scalia, said “Go, look here…” did I find this path to becoming more of who I am. The following quote sets well:

A mature contemplative is far more simple than any child or any novice, because theirs is more or less a negative simplicity–the simplicity of those in whom potential complications have not yet had a chance to develop. But in the contemplative, all complexities have now begun to straighten themselves out and dissolve into unity and emptiness and interior space. ~Thomas Merton
