Beyond all desire

"Infinite Journey"

Here is a beautiful description of the experience of prayer:

Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover action without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and, beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity.

-- Thomas Merton
