Author Thomas Merton in the preface to his 1966 book: ‘Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander’ said, “I do not have clear answers to current questions. I have questions, and, as a matter of fact, I think a man is better known by his questions than his answers. To make known one’s questions is, no doubt, to come out in the open oneself. I am not in the market for the ready-made and wholesale answers so easily volunteered by the public and I question nothing so much as the viability of public and popular answers, including some of those which claim to be most progressive.” Many people today are seeking answers to perplexing questions; yet I wonder how many are asking the right questions, the ones that really matter and will lead us to truth?


Dear Ron : MAYBE TRUTH ARRIVES NATURALLY … Our culture is based on becoming somebody, it is built on the hierarchical principle – the one who knows and the one who does not know, the one who has and the one who has not. The one who has not is everlastingly struggling to have, and the one who does not know is forever pushing to acquire more knowledge. Whereas, the man who does not belong to either, his mind is very quiet, completely still, and it is only such a mind that can perceive what is truth and allow that truth to act in its own natural way … FREE FLOWING, neither yours nor mine.
