Slow down and enjoy each magical moment.
(Listen to my song “Slow Me Down” on YouTube by clicking HERE)
My soul waits for the LORD more than sentinels wait for the dawn.
This scripture verse speaks volumes to me…but the volumes are all silent.
As St. John of the Cross said, “God’s first language is silence.”
And Fr. Thomas Keating later added, “Everything else is a poor translation.”
When I sit in silent Centering Prayer, a Christian form of meditation, my soul is waiting…but not in the sense of any anxious expectancy.
The waiting is more in the sense of surrender and acceptance.
When I am simply present…letting go of thoughts as they come…letting go of everything…I eventually settle into a peace.
It is the “peace beyond understanding” that St. Paul talked about (Philippians 4:7).
There is an inner knowing that dawn will come in its time…in God’s time.
Meanwhile…I lack nothing.
