In gratitude for the life and teachings of Thomas Keating:

Contemplation

In the gentle Silence of empty space, in confidence, in contentment, and with the freedom of forgiveness, "There", I behold the Sacred.

With courage and simple joy, in effortless solidarity, "There" I behold the Holy.

"There", my awareness awakens: a glimpse, a mini transformation, a momentary glance of Goodness. And yet, fragmenting filters in with life's living, it's ego urges, fears and unhealed wounds.

Again the"freedoms" seek renewal space, the space of the Holy. In time, the fragmenting will lessen and, with more constancy, I will live out of Sacred Solidarity. Amen
