Listening to Your History
1 I will choose one or two times each day to set aside for a 15-minute space of contemplative rest and reflection. This should be a place of quiet, free of technology—a place apart.
2 I will be specific about the time of day, and the place (or places) where I can find these moments of reflective quiet. I will take a moment to ponder where these will be and see them in my imagination.
3 I will take my 15-minute quiet moments this week to read through the lesson that follows: “Sacred Story Affirmations.”
Set your heart to the path you are to take. Trust it. The path leading to Christ in the Sacred Story practice has some simple Rules that will help you immensely.
I will not read ahead.
I will awaken to the present moment.
I will take each day and each exercise as it comes.
I cannot do Sacred Story better by going faster.
