Lectio Divina #16 Thomas Merton's words reflect an ageless perennial wisdom that portray the relationships of the human psyche from one who speaks from a Self Realized Awareness state of being.Thomas Merton’s autobiography, The Seven Story Mountain, a story of his spiritual journey, is one of the most famous books ever written about a man’s search for faith and peace. Suddenly, in his 20’s, he developed a hunger for the spiritual life. His questions are some of the same questions many ask when beginning a spiritual quest. His description of and longing for communion with Agape, increases that same longing in us as we read The Seven Story Mountain.Merton was a gifted writer, and his prose is often evocative and elegant. He discovered the reality of the Divine whose discovery opened up his life to love. The book was written after the world-wide disillusionment of WWII, and gave hope and direction to millions. It’s a book for our times.Reference:TELL YOUR HEART TO BEAT AGAIN by Danny Gokey and Danny's story behind it's creation can be found here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUHRDCYnFfg) Nancy Pfaff is a Spiritual Director with a Master's Degree in Christian Spirituality, and an adherent of C.
