Learn how to meditate on paper. Drawing and writing are forms of meditation. Learn how to contemplate works of art. Learn how to pray in the streets or in the country. Know how to meditate not only when you have a book in your hand but when you are waiting for a bus or riding a train. Above all, enter into the Church’s liturgy and make the liturgical cycle part of your life—let it rhythm work its way into your body and soul.
— Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
