Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using these words of praise, pray slowly:
My God, I love you with all my heart, I praise and thank you...
Repeat several times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
Just be with God.
This union between God and creatures always exists. By it he conserves their being so that if the union should end they would immediatly be annihilated and cease to exist.
St. John of the Cross
For John, we truly exist only in God. Thomas Merton later referred to this as our ‘true self,’ - our authentic being,
rightly existing only in relationship to the God who dwells within us. Pray today for the openness to God's transforming love creating us anew daily.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
