The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

"Spiritual powers and their wondrous functioning--hauling water and carrying firewood." --Layman Pang, upon his realization

Wherever we are there are voices saying:  "Go here, go there, buy this, buy that, get to know him, get to know her, don't miss this, don't miss that," and so on and on.  These voices keep pulling us away from that soft gentle voice that speaks in the center of our being:  "You are my beloved, on you my favor rests."  Prayer is the discipline of listening to that voice of love.

--Henri Nouwen
