quote du jour ~merton – you do not need to know…

You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.

  1. I’ve been coached with the same instruction by my improv comedy director. Although that’s what the classes are billed as, I’ve come to realize that improv is a deep spiritual practice. As Merton guides us, let go of knowing and stay fully open to each moment.

    • I think anything we do can become a deep spiritual practice if we approach it that way, and that usually involves letting go of knowing and staying fully in the moment. I would add one more: letting go of attachment to outcomes. :)
