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.
All the trials and disturbances come from our not understanding ourselves.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa was well aware that authentic self-understanding brings with it great peace and contentment since this self-knowledge recognizes our right relationship to God and one another. As you pray today, ask for a sense of self that frees you for true intimacy with God and others
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
