Regarding So-Called “Current Events”

Expressing a relative lack of interest in so-called “current events,” I was accused of “burying my head in the sand.”

Perhaps. One notes, however, that many early Christian mystics retreated to the desert and resided for long periods of time in just a small hole — with a view, that is, to dedicating themselves entirely to the spiritual intellect. By their standards, I’d still have to bury my torso and legs to reach a suitable condition for my contemplative practices.
