”Once we feel ourselves to be the-one-who-is-experiencing we know who we are
and the process of self-forgetting ceases.
If we resist the temptation to focus on some familiar way of being
we will lose all sense of who we are.
We will be swept up in the freedom of existence,
without any sense of being separate from it.”
~ Jeff Carreira

“The whole purpose of spiritual direction is
to penetrate beneath the surface of a man’s life,
to get behind the façade of conventional gestures and attitudes which he presents to the world,
and to bring out his inner spiritual freedom,
his inmost truth,
which is what we call the likeness of Christ in his soul.”
– Thomas Merton
Easier to find guides than someone to be with you in a discerning, prayerful companionship
“It is easier to find guides,
someone to tell you what to do,
than someone to be with you in a discerning, prayerful companionship
as you work it out yourself.
This is what spiritual direction is.”
~ Eugene H. Peterson
