hearing God

Regularly retiring to the dark cave, to the fearful quiet of silent prayer and mediation, to listen to the whisper is the first step in breaking free from addiction to religious spectacle. It is the first step on the path to unknowing. I grew up reading bumper stickers that described conversion with the phrase, “I found it.” This should be matched by another many miles down the spiritual road: “I lost it.” That darkness opens up whole new vistas for us, and gives us the ears to hear the whisper.
