Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
It is great wisdom to know how to be silent and to look at neither the remarks, nor the deeds, nor the lives of others.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul moves into deeper relationship with God, it grows in its ability to silence the inner voices of curiosity about others’ words or deeds, or their lives as a whole. Pray today to be concerned only with your Beloved.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
