Our spiritual life is a life in which we wait,
actively present to the moment,
expecting that new things will happen to us,
new things that are far beyond our own imagination or prediction.
This, indeed, is a very radical stance toward life
in a world preoccupied with control.
I walk slowly, silent
but for the crackle of leaves underfoot
present in the waiting
active in expectation
and fully His
