Openness

The “openness” that is asked of contemplatives by the Church is then not a mere matter of relaxation, not an expedient for making life more livable. The real purpose of openness is to renew life in the Spirit, life in love.

Thomas Merton, O.C.S.O Contemplation in a World of Action, p. 140
