John Michael Talbot gave a beautiful example while talking about centering prayer this weekend. He talked about the word Spirit and one of its connotations in Hebrew to a word meaning something akin to intimate breath. He then gave this example. Imagine laying face to face with a lover, not speaking, just being with them where you share your breath as you are so close. Centering prayer is like that.

For me that has helped me to let go in centering prayer. I tend to be drawn to imagery of the lover and Beloved.
