In this, the last book he wrote before his death, the spiritual writer John Main characteristically turns to the source and focus of all his inspirational teaching about prayer - the presence of Christ. He writes,'Learning to meditate is the most practical thing in the world. You require only one quality when you begin. That is seriously to want to learn - The central message of the New Testament is that there is really only one prayer and that this prayer is the prayer of Christ. It is a prayer that continues in our heart day and night'. John Main describes this prayer as the stream of love that flows constantly between Jesus and his Father. John Main believed that the most important goal for any fully human life that we should become receptive to this stream of love. Stillness and silence before God is the way to achieve this. Leaving distraction behind, we find fullness of life in love and silence. A striking feature of the book is its emphasis on simplicity and moving beyond 'techniques' of prayer.
