The time for contemplation

Here's something Thomas Merton said that I had not come across before today:
"The time for contemplation is the spring that feeds our action, and our action will be as deep as the spring. We need time to allow the spirit to clear the obstacles - the clinging debris and mud - that keeps the spring from flowing freely from its clear, deep source. And we need time for the spring to overflow into insightful and compassionate action."

  1. I can identify with this. I have had a few episodes of debris and mud recently.
