Fr. Laurence’s Lenten Reflections (Tuesday – Week 1)
Select a quiet place and a time that suits your daily routine, preferably in early morning and early evening. Sit comfortably with your back straight, on a chair or a cushion as you prefer. Close your eyes lightly. Observe your breathing for a few breaths. It can slow the racing mind and show you that you can be, without being fixated on your thoughts.
Then introduce your mantra silently, and repeat it gently, faithfully, simply, continuously, non-judgmentally. I would recommend the word 'maranatha'. Some corner of your mind will want to stay apart from this simple, attention-absorbing practice. "I'll say the mantra and do my tax returns or think about Downton Abbey or plan my day". Give up this enclave of separation and control.
Give the mantra all you have and you will become all you are.
