Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
From this humility stems love of neighbor, for they will esteem them and not judge them as they did before.
St. John of the Cross
The humble soul is self-aware and in touch with both its limits and its gifts – not needing to judge others to feel better or more important. Pray today for an honest acceptance of yourself in relationship to God and others.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
