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.
One should not proceed in a way that is distressing or disturbing to a soul.
St. Teresa of Avila
A wise guide as well as an experienced seeker, Teresa was well aware of the destructive power of distress or disturbance for the one who is drawn to a more intimate relationship to God. Pray today for inner peace; this comes when we entrust ourselves to God alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
