I have had this question for many years now: how can I live with God in solitude in the midst of the world? Solitude and the world are almost oxymorons but many saints who were successful in their spiritual life obtained this while living in the midst of the world. It fascinates me that many saints even in their childhood they lived this life and tasted its sweetness that when they went to the monastery, their father of confession told them that they were already living this life since the day they were conscious. I have asked monks about this question but I want a more deeper answer or more organized. Sitting with God in solitude facilitates many aspects of our life such as service, balancing our lives and prioritizing God, but reaching this is very challenging so how can it be done in the midst of everything we have to do in life and how can we balance our lives in such a manner?
