Monastic Wisdom

Fr Wigram, white-haired Cowley monk,
was chatting with a postulant
who asked him which "method
of contemplative prayer"
he preferred.

The older priest
scratched his head and admitted:
"Well, usually I just kneel down
and hope for the best."

Sounds about right. One easily can overthink such things.

Reminds me of my Buddhist friend who meditates in a comfy beach chair. Whatever works.
