When through silence and detachment we learn to share, the spiritual world is anything but disconnected from the "real" world. Then, the real world becomes one with the heavenly reality, which must be infused upon and inform this world. Then, we can no longer lead lives disengaged from the injustice in our world. Then, our vision becomes enlarged, able to contain so much more than ourselves or our own. Indeed, our heart is then able "to contain the Uncontainable." Whenever we embrace such a cosmic vision, we cease to narrow life to our own concerns, our own desires and our own selves, attending in the process to our vocation to transform the entire creation of God.
