I love this quote from Thomas Merton. It’s a great illustration of why meditation is the deepest form of prayer.
“The highest praise we can offer Him is to sacrifice every attempt to praise Him in human language and resist the temptation to reduce Him to the level of our own concepts and understandings. So it is great praise of God to remain in His silence and darkness. My silence is therefore the sacrifice of all things and the offering of my soul to God. Hence, my silence is my salvation.”
