Life moves fast!
Are you sleepwalking through life?
Are you living life or letting life live you?
Do you feel like you just go through the motions day after day after day?
That is why I practice Centering Prayer.
Centering Prayer slows me down.
It connects me to God.
It allows me to enjoy the present moment.
It helps me see what my life tells me.
I can react accordingly.
My life seems to spawn from my silent sits.
I no longer just go through the motions.
I live life with purpose.
My silent sits ground me and are a strong base from which I operate.
Open Mind, Open Heart 20th Anniversary Edition by Thomas Keating and Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening by Cynthia Bourgeault were the first two books I read as I began my Centering Prayer practice.
An Ocean of Light: Contemplation, Transformation, and Liberation by Martin Laird
Jesus the Teacher Within by Laurence Freeman
Moving from Stress to Joy by Nicholas Amato
Since the time of the Desert Fathers in the third century, Finley begins, Christian mystics have practiced meditation as a way of opening to the direct presence of God in daily life. Legendary seekers such as Saint John of the Cross, Saint Teresa of Avila, and Meister Eckhart explored how meditation can lead us beyond the closed horizon of the ego, to an interior and holy refuge that is always available to us. On Christian Meditation, James Finley offers a gentle introduction to this all-transforming way of life, and the ever-deepening realization of oneness with Christ it leads us to.
