I spent last weekend in Abbey of Our Lady of Koningshoeven in Berkel-Enschot. It was a reunion of all the A Stranger in the Monastery-weekends so far. Within the hospitality of the brethren Cistercian order we explored the theme silence and celebrated the Liturgy of the Hours with them; 6 times a day between 4:30 and 19:30.

Time, the Beat of Life. How Each Passes Quicker than the Last

Old people often say time flies. They should know, as they have seen so much of it. But do you remember when you were young, and the summer seemed to last forever? They can’t both be right, can they? Well imagine this. When you’re five years old, one year is 20% of your life, when you’re 80 it’s only 1,25%.

The brain-scientist that had a stroke: “And the next thing my brain says to me is, ‘Wow! This is so cool.’ (Laughter) ‘This is so cool! How many brain scientists have the opportunity to study their own brain from the inside out?’ (Laughter)”

The brain-scientist that had a stroke. She studied her experience and claims to have found Nirvana. What does that say about left- and right-brain approaches of religion?
