VALID SEEING & HEARING

AT THE CLOSE OF THIS DAY, a day of returning, often, in heart and mind, to Christ’s command: “Peace! Be still!” – ; at the close of this day of Resurrection, of Worship, of words, and many, many revelatory encounters; at the close of this gifted day – a few quiet moments with Evelyn Underhill …

The condition of all valid seeing and hearing … lies in a self-forgetting attentiveness, a profound concentration, a self-merging which operates a real communion between the seer and the seen – in a word, in contemplation.

Mysticism – Evelyn Underhill
