presence knows presence


"Prayer is not primarily saying words or thinking thoughts. It is, rather, a stance, a way of being present.

It’s a way of living in the Presence, living in awareness of the Presence, and even of enjoying the Presence. Presence knows Presence.

The full contemplative is not just aware of the Presence,

but trusts,
allows,
and delights in it." -- Richard Rohr

I love this.

Of course, I need to let go of me to be able to trust the presence - and that's hard to do.
