"Contemplation is also the response to a call: a call from HIm Who has no voice, and yet Who speaks in everythat is, and Who, most of all, speaks in the depths of our own being: for we ourselves are words of His."

Merton and Contemplation . . . on YouTube
Someone reading out loud the first chapter ("What is Contemplation?") from Thomas Merton's beautiful little book, New Seeds of Contemplation. Have some coffee handy. The voice could put you to sleep. Merton's words, however, may deepen your life.
