THE CONTEMPLATIVE LIFE
"The contemplative life is that radical and risky opening of self to be changed by, and in some way into, God’s own self. It is a formative life; it changes us and our perceptions. It causes us to see beyond our present seeing. Thus it is a life of letting go and allowing a reality beyond our own to shape us, a life of continual dying, of being stripped over and over again of the comfortable and familiar. From another perspective, it is a life of emerging spaciousness; of being made wide and broad and empty enough to hold the vast and magnificent and excruciating paradoxes of created life in the crucible of love"
-Dr. Wendy M. Wright
