Welcoming meditation

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                                        In anxiety, the doors of your heart are locked.

But they protect inward space. Open your inner spaciousness for the Guest. Don't worry about your attitude; just create space in your breathing, in the actual sensations in your body, for the Guest to be there.

Welcome him. Pay attention to him. Be present to him. Feel the sensation of his breath in you.

Let him show you his wounds: your fear, your anger, your shame, your grief. There is enough love for you to bear it. Simply let him be there.

Let him speak to you. Let him set you free. If you forgive anything, it is forgiven. If you retain it, it is retained. You can let the anxieties go.

He breathes his life into you. Now you can pass through those doors, at peace.
