Spiritual Practices
Ways we find ourselves becoming more aware of God.

Being still takes effort. We are a squirmy and restless people. Even with the latest gadgets and apps that remind us take yoga breaks, make lists and organize our time and resources better, it does not seem to be enough.

What if we reconsidered what it means to be still? What if being still meant, just be? Release your squirming and restlessness and let go. Abandon everything that was not your true self.

Today, carry this prayer by Jack Levison in "40 Days with the Holy Spirit" (used with permission) with you:

Holy Spirit
        I have nothing to ask of you
                      Nothing to request from you
                                   Nothing to yearn for
Nothing but this –
                      To let go of ambition
                                  To abandon acquisition
                                                   Nothing to yearn for
Nothing but you
