The powerful presence of God

I am working through Merton’s autobiography, Seven Storey Mountain. In college he was gaining more of an awareness of God through his study of literature. At the end of one summer, he wrote this:

“By the time summer was over, I was to become conscious of the fact that the only way to live was to live in a world that was charged with the presence and reality of God.”

It’s a beautiful statement that I want in my own life.
