Quiet times and Extrovertism

As those of you who know me will know, I'm fairly extroverted to say the least. At its best this means I'm warm and outgoing, easy to chat with and can start a conversation with most people. At its worst this means I'm an attention seeker who sometimes doesn't give others a go. But anyway.

I've been thinking about this, and my desire-particularly at this stage of the year, to go away and do the 'spend a significant amount of time with God seeking direction and guidance for whats coming up' thing. See I enjoy that, and find it really helpful, but often quickly just get lonely and bored! I just need to be around people! Plus, a big way I reckon God guides me is through the wisdom and words of others, so being by myself I reckon I can miss out on that.

But then when i'm around people I just wanna chat and muck around and have fun, which is great, and not what I'd consider an 'unspiritual' thing, but just not what I always need. Maybe I need to go on thos retreat where you're there for a few days and only allowed to talk at mealtimes or something.

Its funny, I love the quiet, contemplative, meditative forms of prayer-just not for too long!

hey digs,

im also totally into the meditation and quiet stilling stuff. it's more often that i have those 'god moments' in those than in church. but some of that stuff also disturbs me, and i don't get into. i remember we did some liturgy hand washing one in veta once and i hated it.

im fairly outgoing most of the time, but i used to be real quiet, and that was when i spent a lot more time thinking and writing too. it's probably why the quiet stuff appeals to me.

anyways, cya around, youtube or something.

peace,
two minutes of chong
