Contemplation in action

I like the way this writer expresses the these two apparent opposites as facets of the same reality (this is indeed an echo of the spirituality of our Founder Father Jean-Marie De La Mennais):
"For [mystics,] contemplation and action are not opposites, but two interdependent forms of a life that is one--a life that rushes out to a passionate communion with the true and beautiful." --Evelyn Underhill
