Luke 2:19

And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.

This is the contemplative life.

God is alive in the present moment.

The Spirit is interacting with us.

Sometimes we are open to guidance and sometimes we are not.

Many are completely unconscious of this spiritual truth.

In order to discern this guidance, we have to pay attention to our experiences.

(Journaling would be a great way to do this!)

What direction do we seem to be getting?

What feelings did we have when this or that happened to us?

We need take Mary’s example by reviewing each day’s happenings and reflecting on them in our hearts.

Allow the events and conversations we’ve had to ruminate in our hearts.

Then rest in silence.

Perhaps your next step will emerge from this time of prayer.

In this new year, what if we enjoy the process of allowing life to unfold?
