state of prayerfulness

 

 

as i prepare myself to meet

in prayer the One who loves

closing out the outside world

releasing my conscious self

 

breathing in everything

that brings me close to him

breathing out everything

that separates me from him

 

all at once I sense a weight

around above beneath behind

my eyes and I am deep deep

into my state of prayerfulness

 

focusing all attention

searching seeking loving him

as this weight moves slowly

down my throat to spread itself

 

across my shoulders descending

gently in my chest seeking

searching the secrets of my heart …

deeper and deeper still

 

searching seeking loving deeply

breathing with my lower belly

gently lightly heaving the weight

reaching deep beyond into my soul

 

a weight a gentle movement

like his Spirit moving as he wills

accepting my will accepting his

filling me emptying my self

 

and there i linger

 

slowly quietly

gently lightly

 

breathing

 

as i

wait …

 

keeping still …

very still …

 

not a word

not a thought

 

an attitude

a state of being …

 

unfeeling

unknowing …

 

 

 

here i am

 

here …

i…

am

Lord

 

waiting …

 

our

Father…

 

let …

your …

will

as …

you …

will

 

who art

 

in heaven…

 

Lord …

 

be done …

 

as i …

still …

 

Lord …

 

as i still …

 

myself …

 

only

 

for you…

 

only

 

in  you ….
