God is a word we use, and we think we know what it means. But, in truth, God is always far beyond our understanding. We can only know God by unknowing. We can only offer our willingness and our wonder. This kind of constant and open inquiry is an intense intimacy through which we take God into our being.

The simple ways described in this book are some means to remain constant, to have a rule. Whether in action or in quiet stillness, it is the simple, direct emptying of our selves in love and wonder that opens our being to God. Then a day might come when we catch glimpses of God’s presence everywhere and in everything. We will have begun to know what it is to pray without ceasing...
