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.
Through perseverance in its spiritual exercises without consolation or satisfaction, the soul practices the love of God.
St. John of the Cross
Practicing the love of God is to live as Jesus did – seeking only what God wills and inviting all people to the love of God and neighbor. Pray today that you will remain faithful to practicing this love of God, even when you experience no “consolation or satisfaction.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
