A mystic from the 1500’s, St. Teresa of Avila, wrote The Interior Castle. This essay divides her relationship with God into seven mansions of a castle to explore. She goes deeper and farther into the castle exploring and experiencing God in her imagination within this castle. Entrance into the first mansion was guaranteed entry.
Use your imagination to explore God in the interior of a castle. Where is Jesus? What are the pictures on the walls? What’s in the room Jesus is gently offering to help you clean? What does Jesus want to tell you?
