The Spirit prays . . .


Rm. 8:26.  The Spirit prays as we ought.  Enter into the stillness of the interior.  The flesh only distracts and disquiets.  In the interior darkness only is the fullness of the Light to be found.  The Spirit, the stillness, the calm of the Center, the Infinity, the Eternity.
