John Main says in one of his talks: The wonderful beauty of prayer is that the opening of our heart is as natural as the opening of a flower. To let a flower open and bloom it is only necessary to let it be; so if we simply are, if we become and remain still and silent, our heart cannot but be open, the spirit cannot but pour through into our whole being. It is for this we have been created.

It is not often one can say, “This is the greatest gift I have received in my lifetime,” but that is an accolade I can give unreservedly to the teaching and practice of meditation in the contemplative tradition. I will be forever indebted to the Benedictine monk John Main (1926- 1982), whose teaching on the daily practice of silence and stillness in prayer has now grown into the extraordinary contemplative renewal taking place all around the world. (Paul Harris)
