Centering Prayer is not a sprint.
It’s a marathon.
Centering Prayer practiced daily, weekly, monthly, yearly will transform you!
If you are faithful to your practice, your practice will be faithful to you.
Many people give up and quit too soon.
Here are some reasons that I commonly hear about why people quit:
- They do not see immediate results.
- They do not trust the process.
- They do not feel they have the time to do it.
- It is too hard to sit in silence.
The key is to stick with it.
Do not give up!
Start small if you must.
Baby steps: 1-5 minutes
Gradually increase your time.
Just keep at it!
Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a sit.
Just show up for your next sit.
Over time I think you will notice fruits.
From my experience these fruits are unique to each person.
We do not sit for these fruits but God seems to bless us with them.
Centering Prayer has been so life giving for me!
That is why I continue to return to my daily sits.
And that is why I enjoy to share it with others who want to learn more.
We need this…..Thank you Rich
I have been practising Centering Prayer for 12 years.
This means I spend 60 mins in the morning and 30 mins in the evening.
I have my mantra in which I trust 100%. With the mantra in operation I am trusting in the Presence and action of Christ.
As the mind quietens thoughts and distractions come. I do not try to push them away. I put them on my daily altar of sacrifice. I let them go. The energy that accompanies them is transformed into a higher frequency letting go or emptying of the ego and the real Self( Christ) comes into focus.
It transforms daily activities
