“Dangerous Activity” (Joan Chittester)

Contemplation is a very dangerous activity. 

[Contemplation] not only brings us face to face with God.  It brings us, as well, face to face with the world, face to face with the self.  And then, of course, something must be done.

Nothing stays the same once we have found the God within….

We carry the world in our hearts: the oppression of all peoples, the suffering of our friends, the burdens of our enemies, the raping of the Earth, the hunger of the starving, and the joy of every laughing child.
