A door opens in the center of our being
and we seem to fall through it
into immense depths which,
although they are infinite,
are all accessible to us;
all eternity seems to have become ours
in this one placid and breathless contact.
God touches us with a touch that is emptiness
and empties us.
God moves us with a simplicity
that simplifies us.
~Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
