Is The Door To Your Steam Bath Open?

“Nouwen uses the image of a steam bath to describe the life of the Spirit within us. The only way to keep a steam bath hot is to keep the door shut and every time the door opens heat will escape and the fire will eventually go out if you are not careful. And so it with us- each time we speak we open the door to the Spirit’s inner fire and only through regular silence can you hope to stoke our fire.”
