God is the unstoppable energy of all beings, a boundless source that cannot be slowed down or ultimately overcome.”
– Matthew Fox
Do you know that within you is a powerful source of energy?
This is one reason why I practice Centering Prayer everyday.
Deep within me is an energy that waits to be let loose and put to good use in this world.
My silent sit reconnects me to this energy.
My silent sit feeds me and nourishes my soul.
That is why I return to it each day.
It is so powerful that I return for a second sit each day too.
My silent sit helps me best identify how to channel this energy within me.
I seem to receive inner nudges during my sits.
These nudges tell me the actions I should take today and in the future.
How do you feed and nourish your soul?
How do you connect to this energy within?
