Solitude and harmony

“And there is no question, once again, that I am only fully ‘normal’ and human when I have plenty of solitude. Not that I ‘think’ but that I ‘live’ according to a different and more real tempo, live with the tempo of the sun and of the day, in harmony with what is around me.

It would be infidelity to deny or evade the obvious truth that such a life is fully and completely right, and I cannot doubt it is the life I was meant for. Most of my troubles have come from tendencies to half believe those who may doubt it.”

– Thomas Merton, Dancing in the Water of Life
