CHRISTIAN MEDITATION QUOTE, January 2018
“We live in a society that doesn’t recognise the immense value of spiritual practice, that doesn’t recognise the spiritual reality. Meditation is a way that enables us each day to root our lives in the divine reality of God….We want to live our lives to the full in the world, and we know that we can only do that if we have the confidence that comes from rootedness in God. It’s as though we were rushing through our lives and in our hearts there is the flame of a candle; and because we are moving at such high speed, this essential interior flame is always at the point of going out.
When we sit down to meditate, when we become still, when we are not thinking in terms of our own success, of our own self-importance, of our own will, but when we are just still in the presence of the one who IS, then the flame begins to burn bright and we begin to understand ourselves and others in terms of light and warmth and love.”
