“You cannot earn this God. You cannot prove yourself worthy of this God. Feeling God’s presence is simply a matter of awareness. Of enjoying the now. Deepening one’s presence. There are moments when it happens. Then life makes sense.”
~ Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs
I’ve found this prayer by St. Patrick a really effective way to deepen awareness and experience Presence.
God beneath you,
God in front of you,
God behind you,
God above you,
God within you.
