expanding our prayer palette

Saturday, January 2, 2016

From time to time, I will recommend books
relating to interior quietude...today's selection
is about prayer.

My prayer life has long been rich and full of wonder, but since
I began a daily centering prayer practice last year,
a brand new inner landscape of beauty has emerged.

Centering prayer is but one delicious entree
in David Brazzeal's creatively scrumptious
which challenges us to savor prayerful
courses as we might enjoy
a fine French meal. 

Brazzeal's writing style is engaging and accessible,
and it's refreshing to be introduced
to so many artful avenues...
all with the intent of leading us
into deeper communion
with the divine.

For example, I learned how a simple French game
of hide-and-seek (Cache-cache) can become
an adventure in discovering God
hiding in the world around us
(and he surely wants to be found!).  

"Learn to listen to subtle cues from your spirit instead of the barrage coming from your brain."   ~David Brazzeal

What an inspired book of uncommon prayers!
