The Ascetic Dimension

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful for beauty is God’s handwriting - a wayside sacrament.
Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Stillness and silence are natural companions to solitude, all three are necessary for a mystical life, a harmonious life.
Bring a rhythm to your life that has a share of solitude, stillness, and silence in it, and you will gradually come home.
That is what spirituality is: the art of homecoming.
One of the amazing things about creation is its plenitude and diversity.
No two stones are the same. No two fields are the same. No two waves or stars or faces are the same. No two thoughts are the same.
It is amazing, really, that we manage to find any similarity at all.
It is there, of course, because without it we couldn’t achieve continuity. But the true calling of everything is to be itself.
There would be huge problems in creation if things decided not to be themselves - if leaves, for example, decided that they were really feathers, or streets decided they were rivers . . .
True creative, critical thought cuts away the undergrowth, helps you recognize being, and lets you realize how magical and strange and mysterious and full of potential life is.
Being is the mystery and the adventure - John O’Donohue On The Secret Landscapes Of Imagination And Spirit
The adjective "ascetic" derives from the ancient Greek term askēsis, which means training or exercise.
