The garden has always been a special place for the encounter with God. Here the person looking for His vicinity never feels alone, because God always embraces him with His love through the beauty of the creation. And as the heart of the person more and more fills up with silence and he more and more abandons himself to this love, he ever more profoundly experiences that everything is His loving message and gift.

These are the images of a garden.

The place of the encounter. If you want so.
When you are tired,
restless and absent-minded,
enter the garden.
Choose a path.
Start on it. Donít hurry.
Give time to each image.
Sit there in your imagination.
Donít interpret. Donít look for emotions.
They close you in yourself.
Simply sit there.
He sits there with you in silence.
Rest for a while.
Say a prayer.
Or keep silent.
Then go along.
When youíre tired, come again.

Enter the garden.
