Tightrope walk

The needs of the world … the inner life. We ourselves lean now too far one way, now too far the other. The rope is straight, reliable, direct, a simple, single, narrow way: the path to life. Our struggle is to learn the balance: to walk it quietly, trustingly, simply. … The depth of our prayer and the depth of our sensitivity to and love for the world: simplicity lies in their congruence. The process of tottering into congruence is the process by which we become simple.” ~ Elaine Prevallet, Reflections on Simplicity
