"We all have free open space and need not look any further than ourselves. It is precious space.  Sometimes this space feels crowded and the peace that comes with space that is free and open seems quite distant.
Cultivating this free space is an art form Christian monks and nuns have long practiced. . ."  - Br. Aaron

"We have what we seek, it is there all the time, and if we give it time, it will make itself known to us." -Thomas Merton
