“We must slow down to a human tempo
and we’ll begin to have time to listen.”
~ Thomas Merton
The pace of the world today leaves little time for self-reflection, self-discovery, or nourishment of the soul; it keeps our focus on the outside world, it keeps us preoocupied with external (and, ultimately, delusional) circumstances, and it keeps us bound to their effects.
May we all rediscover the peace and tranquility of slowing down to a pace that suits us, and a natural rhythm of life, so that we may begin to hear once again the whispers of truth that come from within.
