In The Selfless Self, the Benedictine Monk and teacher Laurence Freeman, describes the essential dynamic of contemplative prayer. This kind of prayer, he says, is like exploring a sea-cave discovered in the holidays of childhood.
Though its recesses may seem dark and deep, something calls to our spirit of adventure and entices us inward to find a hidden treasure. Meditation is the spiritual journey into the cave of the heart, which has its own hidden and unlit places.
