Words of Spirituality
“For me, the experience of the desert has been dominant. Between sky and sand, between Everything and Nothing, the question burns. Like the burning bush, it burns without being consumed. It burns for itself, in the emptiness. The desert is also the experience of listening, the extreme of listening” (Edmond Jabès). Perhaps it is this connection with listening that makes the desert, a ‘presence’ always rich in spiritual significance, so important in the Bible.
