Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
Why is the Lord so fond of humility? It is because God is supreme Truth; and to be humble is to walk in truth, for it is a very deep truth that of ourselves we have nothing good, but only misery and nothingness.
St. Teresa of Avila
Dwell humbly with your God today in the “deep truth” that you are nothing without God, thanking God for all your gifts.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
