Do you feel stuck in life?
You are at a point where you think you need a change.
A BIG change!
This change might include:
-Move to another part of the country
-Make a decision to commit to a relationship
-Go back to school
-Transition to another career
-Quit your job
-Become a caretaker for your parent(s)
-I am sure you can add to this list
What can you do?
How can you make certain you will make the right decision?
There is something you can do to help.
You can take key decisions like this to your centering prayer practice.
You bring them to your sit.
Let them go and give them to God.
And do your silent sit.
What happens during your sit?
You open to the presence and actions of God within.
God prays in you.
Do this for a period of time with these key decisions.
1 to 4 weeks if you must.
See what happens.
Now, how do you now feel about these decisions?
Do they still excite you?
Fear of getting out of your comfort zone is NEVER a reason not to move forward.
If the decision(s) will not harm you or others,
Don’t worry, you can always pivot and adjust along the way.
Did you know that clarity comes with action?
If you take no action what happens?
DO NOT make key DECISIONS in life without pulling in God.
Bring them to your silent sits!

David Frenette’s book The Path of Centering Prayer re-energized the Centering Prayer tradition with its fresh insights and teachings. This companion audio program—created to be equally rewarding as a stand-alone guide—gives listeners an immersive resource to learn contemplative prayer, step by step and in the moment. With clarity and compassionate presence, Frenette explains the essential principles of this contemplative practice for both new and seasoned practitioners, and then guides us experientially through core prayers and meditations.
At the start of each day we ask, what is my greatest contribution today? How can I serve? At the end of each day, we look back and see what went well and where we want to improve. Through this process we learn to fully engage in each day, making the most of every moment all while achieving our goals.
