The Reflective Life by Ken Gire

More inspiration from The Reflective Life by Ken Gire

Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul.  For just as the wind carries thousands of invisible and visible winged seeds, so the stream of time brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptible in the minds and wills of men.  Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them.   Thomas Merton (Seeds of Contemplation)

I love the thought that there really are no meaningless moments; no wasted happenings in our lives.  As Merton so beautifully tells us each and every moment holds the promise of significance, if we are properly prepared spiritually.
