The Call to Listen

Retreat Center at Snowmass, Colorade

Good Morning, God!

This will be my last blog on my Mac Book Pro — at least for a few weeks! If I can, I will send blogs via my iPad 2. If not, then we shall have a lovely series of private conversations.

Friends are joking, God, about my being silent for 10 days.  I shouldn’t wonder! I do a LOT of TALKING!  And Centering Prayer is about LISTENING.

Today at Rotary, Sister Joan told me that Sister Katherine used to wait for 3 or more sessions when doing her Spiritual Direction before she made comments or offered suggestions. She WAITED and LISTENED until she heard the hidden “whys” behind the situations.

She was listening to the person being “directed” but she was listening even more closely to You. Ah, her Self must have been so permeable — so transparent.

It is very tempting, God, to say that I am just a WORD person. But, that is to miss the point. We are invited to REACH UP — to GROW into new ways of Being. So, God, here is my Prayer. Help me let go of old ways to make way for anything new You might want to do.

Story teller,

Posted in a series of molts and upgrades, a surfeit of sound, Adventures, afraid of quiet?, Light shining through, listening
