Resources for You

"If you're a practitioner of Centering Prayer, even a beginning one, it will have been indelibly etched in your mind that contemplation is 'resting in God.' This is the beautiful, simple explanation condensed by Thomas Keating from a teaching by Pope Gregory the Great (540-604), .This "resting" implies a movement beyond thinking, emoting, sensing, and self-reflection to a simple presence, which Keating likes to evoke in terms of that beautiful line in Psalm 133: 'Lord, I keep my soul at peace, like a weaned child in mother's arms.'"
