“Centering Prayer is simply sitting in silence, open to God’s love and your love for God… Because our minds are so attached to thinking, [focus on a sacred word] as the symbol of your intention to consent to God’s presence and action within… When you become aware of thoughts, return ever-so-gently to your sacred word… There is no way to succeed at Centering Prayer, except to return again and again to love. Allow thoughts to come and go without latching onto them, without judgment. Ever-so-gently bring your sacred word, the symbol of your intention, back to mind and return to resting in Presence.” – Richard Rohr
