Fly For a Moment

'Fly for a moment from your affairs, 
escape for a little while 
from the tumult of your thoughts. 
Put aside now your weighty cares
and leave your wearisome toils.
Abandon yourself for a brief space
to God
and rest for a little in Him. 
 Go into the inner chamber of your mind.

Shut out everything save God
and whatever may help you in seeking God.  

Then, having barred the door of your chamber,
seek Him.'

St. Anselm
Painting:  Harold Knight, Morning Sun, 1913
