Life is this simple:
“Life is this simple. We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent, and God is shining through it all the time. This is not just a fable or a nice story. It is true. If we abandon ourselves to God, and forget ourselves, we see it sometimes, and we see it maybe frequently. God shows Himself everywhere, in everything – in people and in things and in nature and in events. It becomes very evident that God is everywhere and in everything and we cannot be without him. It’s impossible. The only thing is that we don’t see it.”
Merton, Thomas, 20th. Century Trappist Monk.
