A sunlit absence martin laird

Postby Samubei В» 26.01.2020

For example, if you fly into Albuquerque or El Paso airports, you will come in quite low over rangeland.

As a global organization, we, like many others, recognize the significant threat posed by the coronavirus. During this time, we have made some of our learning resources freely accessible. Drawing on the wisdom of great contemplatives from St.

Augustine and St. Teresa of Avila to St. Hesychios, Simone Weil, and many others, Laird shows how we can uncover the deeper levels of awareness that rest within us like buried treasure waiting to be found. The key insight of the book is that as our practice matures, so will our experience of life's ordeals, sorrows, and joys expand into generous, receptive maturity. We learn to see whatever difficulties we experience in meditation—boredom, lethargy, arrogance, depression, grief, anxiety—not as obstacles to be overcome but as opportunities to practice surrender to what is.

With clarity and grace Laird shows how we can move away from identifying with our turbulent, ever-changing thoughts and emotions to the cultivation of a "sunlit absence"—the luminous awareness in which God's presence can most profoundly be felt. Addressed to both beginners and intermediates on the pathless path of still prayer, A Sunlit Absence offers wise guidance on the specifics of contemplative practice as well as an inspiring vision of the purpose of such practice and the central role it can play in our spiritual lives.

He has extensive training in contemplative disciplines and gives retreats throughout the United States and Great Britain.

Laird's writing is refreshingly concise, occasionally amusing and vividly memorable. Both beginning and longtime contemplatives will discover treasures in this little gem of a book.

Laird's usual lyrical writing and evocative metaphors were weighted down by the oversharing of the life stories of his students. We use asence to give you the best possible experience. A good book to take along with you for a retreat and read a chapter at a time over a couple days.

Like many of the books I have read on contemplation, Laird lairr on the importance of stillness, a prayer word, and the Jesus prayer. I am trying to soak up everything in these books by Martin Laird. Nevertheless, seaman leonard nimoy act of contemplation and meditation was not something really taught- mentioned? Laird draws from poets, part contemplatives, and psychology.

This is a good companion to Martin Laird's other work, "Into the Silent Land" which focus more on the basics of how to enter into contemplative prayer. We learn to see whatever difficulties we experience in meditation--boredom, marfin, arrogance, depression, grief, anxiety--not as obstacles to be overcome but as opportunities to practice surrender to what is.
