The Practice of Becoming a Divine Reading

 1.      Prepare oneself by relaxing;  just breathe

2.      Read the Word (repeat 3x, one short verse)

3.      Enter into the Word (no analysis, just imagine what this would be like…, take as much time as you need)

4.      Pray the Word (repeat 3x for example the Lord's Prayer)

5.      Contemplate silently the Word  (just sit waiting, repeating a couple words from the reading for two minutes

 Benefits:

              1.     it exercises the brain,
