“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”–Mother Teresa
If you can be honest enough with yourself, most of us would say our head is jumbled up with garbage. So much so we couldn’t hear God if he used a megaphone. Arguably my worst trait, how about you?
Finding peace and quiet enough to hear Gods love is for most of us a challenge. We have conditioned ourselves to the constant moving of the mechanism we call our noodle. Our minds are constantly churning the garbage dump that has become our thoughts.
This is a battle for me. So now I am learning to allow God’s love through meditation. Here is how I do it:
- Using headphones, I put meditation music on and focus on the music to relax my thoughts. “I am” a meditation that the late Dr. Wayne Dyer put out on YouTube. It’s amazing.
- Make a time you know you won’t be disturbed. Turn off cell phone unless you’re using it for the music. Put on Do Not Disturb while listening, it turns off notifications.
- After relaxed, then see yourself in the state-of-mind that you want to be. Learn to experience the peace-of-mind that comes with relaxing your thoughts.
- Don’t fall asleep!
- Allow yourself a half hour.
Learn to find God by relaxing your thoughts!
