yet another merton quote...

...too good not to share, too long to post at the right...i wish i had seen this for new year's day.

April 20, 1947. Good Shepherd Sunday. Day of Recollection

If I were to make any resolutions, it would be the same old ones -- no need to make them -- they have been made. No need to reflect on them -- it doesn't take much concentration to see how I keep them. I struggle along. It is useless to break your head over the same old details week after week and year after year, pruning the same ten twigs off the top of the tree. Get at the root: union with God. Drop everything and hide in yourself to find Him in the silence where He is hidden with you. Listen to what He has to say.
