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.
The Lord Himself will become the reward of this work.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa was intentional in all that she did in her adult life – for her community – for the reform. All was done for the love of God to whom she committed herself with no reservations. As you pray today, be content that, “The Lord Himself will become the reward of (your) work," and do not count the cost.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
