Through the centuries, Hermits have often entrusted their livelihoods to fate or faith — relying upon some version of the principle of Dominus providebit: the divine force will provide sustenance for those who feel led to place their honest trust in it.

In modern times, especially here in the West, this outlook can seem quite foolhardy and misguided. Yet many admirable people today are following such a simple and “risky” path with marvelous results. (See the Contemplations page for some thought-provoking examples.) From studying the matter deeply, I’ve come to believe that this way, by the grace and good providence of “that of God within,” could actually be the best-guided adventure imaginable.
