“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.”
― Mother Teresa
We must learn to be silent. As we sit before God, just say and do nothing. Do not worry if words or thoughts race through your mind. Let them race and pass. They will eventually slow down until you are just sitting in the presence of God. Once there is silence and the absence of thoughts there is now nothing between you and God. Enjoy this moment however long it is. For some it might be a few seconds or a few minutes. For others it might last up to one hour. Simply enjoy it. When you are ready, slowly allow the thoughts and words to start coming back to you. Listen to these thoughts and words. Remember these thoughts and words. These words and thoughts are God speaking to you. Write them down. Ponder upon them. Reflect upon them. Discover what they mean.
