Silence is not empty. It is filled with God.
I cannot imagine a better start to each day than a silent sit.
During centering prayer, I respond to God’s question to me, “Will you sit with me?”
I sit in silence so together God and I can plan each day. I sit in silence to be loved by God. I sit in silence to be healed by God. I sit in silence to let the Creator be free to create through me.
I sit in silence to let go and trust God. I sit in silence because I love God. It is no different than when I sit in silence with a friend or family member.
I sit in silence because it teaches me how to live. I sit in silence to enter a journey. It is a journey that together God and I will take.
As James Finley says, “When engaged in contemplation, we rest in God resting in us. We are at home in God at home in us.” Words do not need to be said.
Contemplative prayer is floating in the ocean of God. You can’t sink because God will hold you.
I cannot think of a better way to start the day then a centering prayer sit!
