Quiet Center

St. Anselm reminds us to find the quiet center where we can meet God:

Up now, slight man! Flee for a little while they occupations; hide thyself for a time from thy disturbing thoughts. Cast aside now thy burdensome cares, and put away thy toilsome business. Yield room for some little time to God, and rest for a little time in Him. Enter the inner chamber of they mind; shut out all thoughts save that of God and such as can aid thee in seeking Him. Speak now, my whole heart! Speak now to God, saying, I seek Thy face; Thy face, Lord, will I seek.

~Quoted in A.W. Tozer's Knowledge of the Holy
