Editor Reviews
From the front Cover In print for more than forty years, New Seeds of Contemplation has served as a guide to the contemplative life for several generations of spiritual seekers. The word contemplation is itself somewhat problematical, according to Thomas Merton: It can become almost a magic word, or if not magic, then 'inspirational, ' which is almost as bad. In this modern Christian classic, Merton reveals contemplation to be nothing other than life itself, fully awake, fully active, fully aware that it is alive. The thirty-nine short seeds that make up this book are intended to awaken and cultivate the contemplative, mystical dimension of the spiritual path for everyone. New Seeds of Contemplation is a revised and expanded version of Merton's earlier book Seeds of Contemplation.
