“...Our challenge as Christians is not to try to convert people around us to our way of belief but to love them, to be ourselves living incarnations of what we believe, to live what we believe and to love what we believe.”
John Main

“That is the conviction we must come to in our meditation, that the darkness cannot quench the light.”
John Main, Way of Unknowing: Expanding Spiritual Horizons through Meditation

“Cuando meditamos eso es exactamente lo que hacemos. Dejamos a Dios ser Dios. Nos dejamos estar en su presencia. Ese es su extraordinario poder. Cronol”
John Main, El camino de la meditacion
