I did not like it. In fact, it was so hard at first. Centering Prayer feels like nothingness. But, I began to notice a difference in me. One that I really like. I was calm and less judgmental. I was more alive and joyful. I was more - me. It became worth the struggle. I began to long for it.
These days I usually spend 45 minutes each day in Centering Prayer. I spend 20 minutes in the morning, 5 minutes midday and 20 minutes in the evening. It brackets my day in time listening to Our Lord. It is a great blessing now. Thank you Lord!
