At the center of our being is a point of nothingness which is untouched by sin and by illusion, a point of pure truth, a point or spark, which belongs entirely to God.
Thomas Merton, (1915-1968) American Trappist monk,
writer, theologian and author of The Seven Storey Mountain
“I came across this after I had already discovered the spiritual traditions of the East. I discovered Thomas Merton had also been exposed to those traditions and learned them himself. And that points to the commonality of all the deep spiritual traditions. Although he uses the word God, which is a word so often misconstrued and abused, one I tend not to use myself, it points to the reality of what we are at the core of our being which is infinite, eternal, always at peace, always at one with all that is, and always happy.”
