Wordless Presence

Contemplation is a wordless opening of oneself to the ineffable; it is looking at God through the prism of wonder instead of reason. Contemplation’s relational quality is what makes it prayer. In contemplation our attention is fixed on the reality that our very being is grounded in God. To speak of contemplation is to quickly rub up against the limits of language, because the object of our contemplation is an inexhaustible Mystery. Contemplation seeks only one thing: a deeper intimacy with God; it does so by making intentional space for God without regard for the results. In contemplation I bring my silent, wordless presence to God who is already present within me.
