While occupying a person's soul, [the divine light] renders that soul simple, pure, and clear of all the apprehensions and forms through which the senses and memory were acting when conscious of time.
St. John of the Cross
Be open to the “divine light” that draws you beyond time – beyond memory and your senses. Rest in God for your prayer today, using no words.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
