New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton
New Seeds of Contemplation -- by Thomas Merton

This edition is a much-enlarged and revised version of Seeds of Contemplation, one of Thomas Merton's most widely read and best-loved works. Christians and non-Christians alike have joined in praising it as a notable successor in the meditative tradition of St. John of the Cross, The Cloud of Knowing, and the medieval mystics, while others have compared Merton's reflections with those of Thoreau.

In print for more than forty years, New Seeds of Contemplation has served as a guide to the contemplative life for several generations of spiritual seekers.

The word contemplation is itself somewhat problematical, according to Thomas Merton: "It can become almost a magic word, or if not magic, then 'inspirational,' which is almost as bad."

In this modern Christian classic, Merton reveals contemplation to be nothing other than life itself, fully awake, fully active, fully aware that it is alive." The thirty-nine short "seeds" that make up this book are intended to awaken and cultivate the contemplative, mystical dimension of the spiritual path for everyone.

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, political activist, social critic, and one of the most-read spiritual writers of the twentieth century. He is the author of many books, including The Seven Storey Mountain, Thoughts in Solitude, and The Way of Chuang Tzu.
