CHRISTIAN MEDITATION QUOTE, November 2017

“The ancient writers called meditation the practice of purity of heart. We have to purify and clarify our hearts, our consciousness, so that we can see with utter clarity of vision. What we see is what is there. We see ourselves; we see creation; and we see God. The revelation is his, and what we learn to do in the faithfulness of our daily meditation is to wait on him, to attend to him in growing fidelity, and in growing purity of heart. I urge you to put aside all sorts of speculation: Am I getting anything out of this?; am I enjoying it?; am I becoming wiser?, or whatever. The pilgrimage is the pilgrimage away from self into the mystery of God.”

~John Main “His Time, His Prayer in Word Made Flesh”
