Mini Mindfulness Break for December 27, 2018

Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.
The foundational practice continues to be Centering Prayer, as taught by Father Thomas Keating.
Cynthia Bourgeault defines Centering Prayer simply–
when you catch yourself thinking,
let the thought or feeling go.
By letting go of the objects of attention, you naturally experience objectless awareness, even if it’s only for a nanosecond.
Incrementally, this non-constricted attitude brings about a capacity to rest in the Cave of the Heart and to begin to see what the heart sees, which gets at the deeper meaning of the phrase:
“Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God”

– Emaho! Lama Surya Das

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
