notes to myself

Thomas Merton:

We should have an immanent approach to prayer.  God is not an Object . . . God is a Subject, a deeper “I.”  He is the Ground of my subjectivity.  God wants to know Himself in us.

Contemplative prayer is nothing other than the “coming into consciousness” of what is already there.
