In Centering Prayer we allow whatever comes up in prayer to run its course. We surrender to the present moment as it is, without trying to alter it, patiently waiting for God. We don’t have any agenda in Centering Prayer. And whatever happens in Centering Prayer, we make no commentary. We simply wait. Anne Lamott adds: “Believing in God is the easy part. Waiting for God is the hard part.”
Eventually all arising thoughts and images fade into the background. Then we experience fullness, spaciousness, and liberty from the hidden recesses of addictive process within our minds. This freedom brings peace and joy, which is God’s intent. For God is all vitality and goodness, radiating from the center of every cell, every earthworm, every cheetah, and every sycamore.
