All That We Are Not
Discernment is a process of letting go of what we are not.
-FATHER THOMAS KEATING
Sit quietly, and as you breathe, feel all that troubles you rise through your body.
As you breathe, allow these troubles to move away from you.
Breathe deeply and accept the stillness that comes. It is the skin of your soul, waiting in its completeness for you to carve away the excess of your very human moods.
It is a very human way, to be consumed by what moves through us.
