Text Versions
Centering prayer is a training in letting go  (Centering Quotes) We bask in sermons, conferences, and books that exalt a grace centering on us  (Centering Quotes) There is a yearning for people to return to elementary moral virtues, such as integrity and commitment. We distrust people who have no centering of values. We greatly respect businessmen, for example, if they display those virtues, even if we don’t necessarily agree with the people  (Centering Quotes) I talk about any number of things on my Facebook space. Politics. Current events. The writing life. The latest tempests in a teapot centering on fandom. Daily doings from my own life. My cats, for crying out loud. Flights of humorous fantasy. Books, both those I’ve read and those I’ve written. Movies. And occasionally, TV shows.  (Centering Quotes) My father was a man who didn’t consider himself learned. He was a man who liked to be a farmer. He enjoyed his dairy farm and felt the calling. So there was a dedication. I was dedicated as a child to the service of God, and so there was this continual centering of a greater purpose than your own.  (Centering Quotes) I’ve practiced centering prayer. I’ve contemplatively prayed. I’ve prayed liturgically... I’ve benefited from each, and I still do. In ways you’ll see, elements of each style are still with me.  (Centering Quotes) Other forms of relating to God that have unique value in connecting us to Him include contemplative prayer and centering prayer.  (Centering Quotes) One of the values of centering prayer is that you are not thinking about God during the time of centering prayer so you are giving God a chance to manifest. In centering prayer there are moments of peace that give the psyche a chance to realize that God may not be so bad after all. God has a chance to be himself for a change  (Centering Quotes) While doing centering prayer, the practice is to let go of any thought or perception. The priority is to be as silent as possible and when that is not possible to let the noise of the thoughts be the sacred symbol for a while, without analyzing them  (Centering Quotes) In centering prayer, the sacred word is not the object of the attention but rather the expression of the intention of the will  (Centering Quotes) Any time I sit down and write music, the first part of that is always centering myself and thinking about who I currently am  (Centering Quotes) A long, deep breath is the equivalent of a full stop and the key to centering  (Centering Quotes) Writing is always a restorative process. It’s like paddling a kayak. When you’re writing, you can’t do anything else. You’re in the space you’re in. So, in that way, it’s enormously centering and restorative  (Centering Quotes) I’ve practiced centering prayer. I’ve contemplatively prayed. I’ve prayed liturgically... I’ve benefited from each, and I still do. In ways you’ll see, elements of each style are still with me  (Centering Quotes) By centering our lives on timeless, unchanging principles, we create a fundamental paradigm of effective living. It is the center that puts all other centers in perspective.  (Centering Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
