We enter the last week of Lent, reflecting on our own inward journey, how we have treated ourselves, others, and most importantly solitude. The solitude is a deep listening to the stillness. When the disciples asked Jesus, “how do you pray?”, he explained that you close your eyes and listen. This type of preparation is the way in which each of is preparing our own resurrection. This is the reason why Easter, the resurrection falls when it does. The symbolic nature of the event is a reminder that our hibernation is over and spring is here. That many of us have spent years hibernating in stillness and now it is time to resurrect. The resurrection in this case is the merging of the heart mind as one.
TODAY I turn my attention from the outside world, and look within. I sit and rest in the infinite till I can hear the call.
