The gift of contemplation

The more we retreat in to sacred silence/comtemplation, the more God's power operates in our life. The more we attempt to run things our way the more in the long run things will not be fruitful. When we look at the simple example at the experiment in Washington performed many years ago, we can witness in a tangible way the effects of prayer and contemplation (meditation). What occurred at that time was the State had an immense amount of crime and solutions began to run slim. It was decided to ask a large amount of people wiling to pray and mediate over the issue. In less than two week crime had dropped radically. God needs our cooperation. Be still and be divinely directed. Prayer changes the atmosphere and our mind.

“Contemplation means rest, suspension of activity, withdrawal into the mysterious interior solitude in which the soul is absorbed in the immense and fruitful silence of God and learns something of the secret of His perfections less by seeing than by fruitive love.”
