Awaken to What is Precious

prayerClose your eyes.  Sit in silence.
Listen for the still, small voice within your heart.
See God with the same Eye that God sees you.

Hear God with the same Ear that God hears you—
Not just in the wind, earthquake and fire,
But in interior of your very Being.

Consistently, persistently, gently, softly—
God speaks, whispers, offers you God’s peace.
Listen for God’s word before you go to sleep.

Prayer is not just speaking to God.
Find God’s presence in all things—
The world is filled with the presence of God.

Open your heart to what is bitter or sweet,
To all that is brilliant or dark.
Discover within your heart the Universe of God.
Awaken to what is precious and be at peace.
