Centering Prayer and lectio divina – 6/5/15 at 4:00 pm
It is good for us to reflect every so often on what we are doing here. One could write a book about it (several have), but here are a few thoughts: We allow ourselves to let go of all separations and to welcome unification; we are de-centering on ourselves and centering on the Presence of God. This entails a kind of forgetting of self-consciousness that frees us to be in the Presence not by “knowing” but by “unknowing”……by pure faith. St. Augustine said, “God cannot be found ‘out there’ until God is found ‘in here.’!
Romans 8:35-39 Nothing therefore can come between us and the love of Christ, even if we are troubled or worried, or being persecuted, or lacking food or clothes, or being threatened or even attacked. As scripture promised: “For your sake we are being massacred daily, and reckoned as sheep for the slaughter.” These are the trials through which we triumph, by the power of him who loved us. For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, no angel, no prince, nothing that exists, nothing still to come, not any power, or height or depth, nor any created thing, can ever come between us and the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord.
