Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
Enlighten the soul that it may see how all its good is within this castle.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa invites us to be content with residing “within this castle,” because “all its good” is there. As you pray today, settle within this castle, knowing that all you need and all that is good for your soul can be found there.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
