An interesting tidbit from this week's Green Book readings:
"Real spirituality dawns when our life with God becomes as real as the problems and joys we experience each day. Until then we live in two different worlds...
"This separation can not remain if all our life is to be filled with real meaning, peace, and awe, no matter how violent or stormy our days may become. When we are truly prayerful we join both worlds. As we become naturally aware of God throughout the day, we journey in both worlds simultaneously. That is truly the spiritual life."
