mystic pass

"The best definition I know for comtemplation is as follows: Contemplation is a long, loving look at what really is.

The essential element in this experience is time. There is a qualitative difference between ten minutes and ten hours, and even more, of course, between ten hours and ten days.

We have to find a place where we can receive all our experiences without repressing anything. We need a place where there's room to consider everything that we've done - and not done - in our life, a place that's bigger than Yes or No, a place bigger than the judgments that we pass.

At this all-embracing place God becomes quite clear. Here there is room for every part of you and for God's presence."
- Richard Rohr, Simplicity
