Creative obedience

“God demands of us a creative consent, in our deepest and most hidden self, the self we do not experience every day, and perhaps never experience, though it is always there. This creative consent is the obedience of my whole being to the will of God, here and now.”

– Thomas Merton, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander
