Retreat or Formation? 避靜或培訓?

Some folks mix up retreat and formation. They seem to think that retreat is formation and formation is retreat. However, they are not the same. To make it simple, a retreat is time we spend with the Big Big Boss (preferably in silence and solitude) for a certain period, usually a few days, a week, or even a month. Formation, on the other hand, is for our intellectual growth, with hope that this would lead us to spiritual growth. When we are on retreat, we should not be too concerned about receiving input. Rather, we ought to spend more time listening to the Big Big Boss voice. In our world today, we are distracted by so many types of noise. As a result, we may have become less and less sensitive to the promptings from our Big Big Boss.

有些人混淆了[避靜]和[培訓]的分别.他們似乎都認为[避靜]就是[培訓],[培訓]就是[避靜].但它們是不一样的.简单的说,[避静]是我們花一段时间与天主(大大老板)单独沈静地相处,通常会是几天,一个星期,甚至是一个月.但是[培訓]从另一面耒说是增强我們智力的成長.但当我們在[避静]时,我們不要太在意输入,相反的我們应該花多一点时间去呤听天主(大大老板)的声音.在现今的世界里,我們可能已变得越來越少去感受天主(大大老板)的提示.
