Individuals are Meant for Contemplation

“Man was made for the highest activity, which is, in fact, his rest. That activity, which is contemplation, is immanent and it transcends the level of sense and of discourse.” - Thomas Merton in Ascent to Truth

God - the Great Reliever of Stress

As a Mystic, bring your stress to God.  Jesus implores us to bring our prayers to God.  In quiet meditation and reflection, we can find relief in all our concerns and be loved for who we are.  We can sit in this place of love and be loved by Love itself.  Bring it all to God.  Let is all flow from you. In this place of rest, decide what you can do and give the rest to Our Lord.
