Check in

Choose a mantra or ''prayer word'' such as ''God,'' ''love,'' ''Spirit,'' or ''Jesus'' to quiet the mind when distracting thoughts intrude.
Close your eyes and start reciting the mantra aloud at first, so you can listen to yourself speaking or chanting the mantra.
After a few minutes, begin to recite more quietly, whispering and finally only moving your lips to form the mantra without producing an audible sound.
Recite the mantra in your mind, repeating it mentally without moving your lips.

Conversation Topic

If we plant a flower or a shrub and water it daily it will grow so tall that in time we shall need a spade and a hoe to uproot it. It is just so, I think, when we commit a fault, however small, each day, and do not cure ourselves of it.
St. Teresa of Avila

Conversation Starter
