pressure and pull of a noisy day

The pressure and pull of a noisy day denies us the comfort of God.
It is a day in which we are buffeted by the world around us
and left at the mercy of the clatter and jangle of our own hearts.
To be a contemplative we must put down the cacophony of the world around us
and go inside ourselves to wait for the God
who is a whisper not a storm.
