Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
[The soul] no longer goes about in search of her own gain and pleasure, nor occupies herself with things and matters foreign to God.
St. John of the Cross
John describes a soul who has been purified and is accessible to God’s transforming love. This soul is taken up with God alone. Pray today to be detached from everything that prevents you from being open to God’s grace.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
