Mirror meditation

In the Letter of James, we are told that the Scriptures are like a mirror in which we can see ourselves. In this type of meditation we take a piece of Scripture, hold it before us and consider what echoes within our heart. These echoes help us to see who we are before God and how we are loved.

What usually echoes in us are situations that we are dealing with in our lives. When something strikes us, we do not actively try to solve the situation or work it through. Rather we sit holding it in God's love. The point of such a meditation is to make space within the situation for God's love to be. In 'sitting with' such a situation, painful or sad, we come to recognise the love of God that is at work on our lives.

The suggestions for Mirror reflections can also be used for Exercise reflections but wouldn't be advised for Driving Prayer as often some degree of emotion or distraction might rise in such prayer.

This Sunday's Mirror Meditation

Rest in the love of your God.

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells us that the Father delights in giving us the Kingdom. Ponder on what you find delightful in your life. Ponder on what you think the Father finds delightful in your life. When you have relished the delight that exists in your life, ask yourself what attitudes or actions could increase your sense of delight in the Kingdom of God.

Rest in the love of your God.
