"In the point of rest at the center of our being, we encounter a world where all things are at rest in the same way. Then a tree becomes a mystery, a cloud a revelation, each man a cosmos of whose riches we can only catch glimpses. The life of simplicity is simple, but it opens to us a book in which we never get beyond the first syllable."
- Dag Hammarskjold, "Markings", p. 174

You know, the first time I came across Dag Hammaskjold's "Markings" (way back in the 1970s) I knew that I had come across a kindred spirit. Contemplatives tend to recognize each other across distance and time. THanks, Phil!Delete
I don't know what happened to Robert's comment here, but I just want to say THANKS for all those Dag Hammarskjold references. I'm definitely following up on these.ReplyDelete
