Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1957
QuotationFinishing up a very good two day retreat. Spent it all under the five or six pine trees near St. Teresa's field in the calf pasture-the part that is now "ours." could hardly think of a better place and was not tempted to look for one. Barefoot most of the time. Read little. Some psalms. Some of the new Bouyer book (Le trône de la sagesse), some Symeon the New Theologian, some Zen. Whatever problems I have are on the level where Zen can hit them squarely.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 224
