The Psalms -

"The windows are open. Let the psalms fly in."

Thomas Merton spent his life writing about contemplation, yet his own way of prayer was in fact surprisingly simple, "centered entirely on attention to the presence of God and to His will and His love...a kind of praise rising up of out of the center of Nothing and Silence...not thinking about anything, but a direct seeking of the Face of the Invisible.

Quote and text from Thomas Merton - A Book of Hours - p. 27
