Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
In the measure that the fire [of the spirit of love] increases, the soul becomes aware of being attracted by the love of God and enkindled in it, without knowing how or where this attraction originates.
St. John of the Cross
John knew that as the fire increases we are literally consumed by divine love. In your prayer today, focus your mind and heart on God and God’s love alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
