Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
And here lies the remarkable delight of this awakening: The soul knows creatures through God and not God through creatures.
St. John of the Cross
Delight in the true awakening that comes when you begin to see all creatures from God’s perspective, i.e. “through God.” As you pray today, be open to this new way of seeing - the beginning of a new way to live your life more fully.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
