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.
The soul remains, in consequence [in this contemplation], as though ignorant of all things since it only knows God without knowing how it knows him.
St. John of the Cross
Lost in the mystery of God’s love, the contemplative soul rests in God, without analysis and judgment, and is accessible to God’s gifts. As you pray today, allow yourself to be swept up into the mystery of God’s love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
