In centering, we begin to leave aside our own thoughts and images and feelings and to make space for the Spirit to begin to operate in us through the gifts. Outside the time of prayer we begin--and often others begin before us--to perceive the presence of these wonderful gifts in our daily lives. These are the fruits by which we judge the "tree" of our centering prayer. It is only through these fruits and the healing they represent that we can know the spirit is working in our lives through this deep, quiet communion with Love at the center of our being.
From the heart of me that is the Heart of God
Love streams forth to all my worlds,
And I am One.
From the Light we share within the Mind of God
Love streams forth to all our worlds,
And we are One.
From the All in all that is the Life of God
Love streams forth -- God's plan made real --
And all are one.
With God as our Beloved,
We are the Plan on earth.
