Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
I know that the more rapidly one advances on the way of perfection, the further one considers one's self from the goal.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese reminds us that those who are closer to God, are more aware of their need for mercy than the great grace they have in their closeness to their loving Lord. As you pray today, approach God with humility and ask for mercy.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
