The Contemplative Companion for Thursday, October 16, 2014

 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ.” – Ephesians 1.3

While there are many influences that I observe in my life, I wish to feel the experience of being in Christ.

What might deepen my awareness of this gift today?

The Contemplative Companion for Wednesday, October 15, 2014

“Brothers and sisters: If you are guided by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” – Galatians 5.18

I begin this day with a wish to be as free as possible from the law of recurrence.

God of freedom, help me to learn from my observations and grow in Essence so to draw a different life.

The Contemplative Companion for Tuesday, October 14, 2014

“For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5.1

Sensing my body and observing my thoughts and feelings, I discover where I am constricted and ask for the liberating grace that connects my awareness more deeply in Christ where all binds are released and resolved by Love.

Misperception #1: Centering Prayer is “Not Christian”

Misperception #2: Centering Prayer is “Not Biblical”

Misperception #3: Centering Prayer is “Dangerous”

Misperception #4: Centering Prayer is about “Finding the Divine within You”

Here’s what some readers are saying:

“In the tradition of Keating and Merton, Haas is continuing the compelling invitation to rediscover contemplative Christianity.”

“If you have questions or concerns about Centering Prayer, here is a timely resource for a new generation of spiritual seekers.”

The Contemplative Companion for Monday, October 13, 2014

“Who is like our God, who looks upon the heavens and the earth below?” – Psalm 113.5 – 6

Waking, I discover myself given again the gift of life today.

As I reflect upon the vastness of the heavens, can I feel how I am called to open more deeply and completely to the life of God birthing in me a new Being and Beginning in this moment?

The Contemplative Companion for Friday, October 10, 2014

“I will give thanks to God with all my heart.” – Luke 11.15

Gratitude is my path today.

I wish to feel deeply the active vibrations of grace holding all things together, guiding my life and feeding me body, soul and mind.

And as I do, I will become a location of grace, feeding others as I am fed.

The Contemplative Companion for Thursday, October 9, 2014

 “And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” – Luke 11.9

I wish to continue to deepen in my knowledge of the creation and maintenance of the creation, and the knowledge thereof.

All around me are mysteries of existence and being.

How could I not be moved to worship, adore and explore?
