Happy Birthday Thomas Merton

The reality that is present to us and in us:
Call it Being...Silence. And the simple fact that by being attentive,
By learning to listen(or recovering the natural capacity to listen)
We can find ourself engulfed in such happiness that it cannot be explained;
The happiness of being at one with everything
In that hidden ground of Love
For which there can be no explanations....
May we all grow in grace and peace,
And not neglect the silence that is printed in the centre of our being.
It will not fail us.

--Thomas Merton

Happy Birthday, Thomas!
