Merton

Life is this simple: We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and God is shining through 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 is manifest everywhere, in everything–in people and in things in nature and in events. It becomes very obvious that God is everywhere and in everything and we cannot be without God. It’s impossible. It’s simply impossible.
