Try to keep your soul always in peace and quiet, always ready for whatever our Lord may wish to work in you. It is certainly a higher virtue of the soul, and a greater grace, to be able to enjoy the Lord in different times and different places than in only one. — Saint Ignatius.


This is some good advice by Saint Ignatius. Always try to keep your soul in peace and quiet.

In a world that always shouts telling you to keep your game up, keep your hustle going and make it. Always try to keep your soul in peace and quiet.

Lead a quiet life, away from the noise, the hurry, and the distraction.

Always gravitate towards quiet, rest, trust, calm, freedom.

This is where we get to hear God’s voice clearly.

When we go the quiet place with God, we come out understanding God’s assignment for us.

We come out with a sense of identity of who we are, and who we are not.

We come out with a sense of direction, this is what I’m meant to do next, this is my next step on my spiritual journey.

The goal is to withdraw from the world in order to detox from the stress and gain strength, and importantly to come back with rejuvenated strength and love.

The opposite of contemplation is not activity but reactivity.
