The only thing is that we don't see it ...

Some words from Thomas Merton on this snowy winter's day:

Life is this simple:

We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent

and God is shining through it all the time.

This is not just a fable or a nice story.

It is true.

If we abandon ourselves to God

and forget ourselves,

we see it sometimes

and we see it maybe frequently.

God shows Godself everywhere,

In everything,

In people and in things and in nature and in events.

It becomes very obvious that God is everywhere and

in everything and we cannot be without God.

It is impossible.

The only thing is that we don't see it.
