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.
For in order to know ourselves, it helps a great deal to speak with someone who already knows the world for what it is.
St. Teresa of Avila
Praising spiritual mentors who are grounded and wise, Teresa invites us to seek this accompaniment if we are to “know ourselves.” Pray today for an openness to seek the guidance of others, as you deepen your self-awareness on this spiritual journey
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
