My dear friend David in Montreal sent around the following this morning:
If we take on board the classic understanding of the spiritual life as one of cultivating recollection, then not noticing is the very antithesis of spiritual practice, isn't it?
To pray is to take notice of the wonder, to regain a sense of the mystery that animates all beings, the divine margin in all attainments. Prayer is our humble answer to the inconceivable surprise of living. It is all we can offer in return for the mystery by which we live.
