Noise

It all adds up to one thing: peace, silence, solitude.
The world and its noise are out of sight and far away.
Forest and field, sun and wind and sky, earth and water—
all speak the same silent language.

— Thomas Merton [via]

Definitely don’t get any of this on the internet, especially from reading weblogs that feebly mask their true colors of entrenched tribalism and rabid polemics embraced by their form of religion, politics, and/or even spirituality. Prideful noise, most of it is.

I was a bit harsh here. There are a few good weblogs—weblogs that make you think, or feel, or pray. But they are drowned out by the noisy ones.
