The truth

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free
(John 8:32; NLT).

*****************************

 

Meditation doesn’t mean
Observing our thoughts dispassionately,
Then simply letting them go.

Instead, it’s an opportunity
To grasp our secret thoughts
So we can hear them –

For then
We will learn the truth
About ourselves.

Prayer

Contemplation

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you
(Isaiah 26:3; NLT).


Lord,
In contemplation,
I watch my memories, worries,
Thoughts, and feelings
Drifting by –
Until they’re out of sight.

I needn’t add to them,
Or go with them,
Or try to block them from awareness,
Or hurry them away.

I just observe them, one by one,
As they drift by,
Until they’re out of sight,
Leaving me in perfect peace,
With you.
