Today was another full day, which I do enjoy, if I’m being honest. I decided to take my 5 minutes silence in the afternoon rather than the morning. Earlier in the day I had been preparing for a teaching session, which involved reflecting on the phrase u’source of my being’. As I set my alarm and settled into a chair I held this phrase in my mind. I repeated it slowly and as I listened to my breathing it seemed as if I was becoming stiller.
For me, I think of the ‘source of my being’ as a way of describing God, and even in such a relatively short space of time I experienced a moment of peace as I held this phrase. I felt still, I felt peaceful, I felt able to breathe deeply. Just for a moment.
