how does an apple ripen?

"God is like the air we breathe.
Perhaps that is why the deeper
we grow in the prayerful awareness
of the Divine presence in our lives,
the less we actually say with words
and the more we simply
breathe and enjoy it.
How does an apple ripen?
It just sits in the sun."

Thomas Merton
