Centering Prayer: Enter the Larger Mind

We best understand God when we try not to understand God.

This goes back to having a beginner’s mind.

We maintain a posture of openness.

We let go and admit that we don’t know.

We simply trust.

We leave our “small mind” and enter the “larger mind.”

We die to our self.

Cynthia Bourgeault wrote, “Dying to self means being willing to let go of what I want (or think I want) in order to create space for God to direct, lead, and guide me into a truer way of being.”

We die to what the world tells us we need.

When I practice centering prayer I move from “let go” to “let be.”

I let myself “be” with God.
