Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
Some spiritual persons call this contemplation knowing by unknowing. For this knowledge (of God)... is produced in the possible or passive intellect.
St. John of the Cross
The heart of prayer for a person called to this depth of contemplative prayer is accessibility or receptivity – opening yourself to God’s transforming work within you. Ask for the gift of this openness in your prayer today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
