“I don’t feel that I can in conscience, at a time like this, go on writing about things like meditation… I cannot just bury my head in a lot of rather tiny and secondary monastic studies either. I think I have to face the big issues, the life-and-death issues: and this is what everyone is afraid of. ”

-Thomas Merton from “Hidden Ground of Love”⠀
