Relax and Retreat

The world clamours for attention and participation. God alone is silent, undemanding, and unaggressive.
It is not that the soul cannot be found in populous cities but that it can be found more easily and more quickly in solitary retreats. Its presence comes more clearly there. But to learn how to keep it we have to return to the cities again.
