There is an Inner Presence within each of us
A part of our Being
The Life Force that creates us and makes us whole.
It connects us to the Great I Am
To Infinite Love
This Presence lives within us, through us, around us.
It is Energy
Some say it dwells in our hearts
Others feel it in their guts
The Wisdom-Keepers say it is our Soul.
I’m not sure what to call it
I cannot point to its location
But I feel it gently burning in my chest
Its warmth spreading throughout my body.
I often get too busy, too noisy to be aware of this Presence
But it’s always there, waiting for me
Hoping I’ll open my heart to its Divine Wisdom.
And in moments of quiet stillness
I am awed by its Mystery
I am embraced by Infinite Love.

In this fast-paced, often overwhelming world, it’s important to develop life-giving practices that teach us how to slow down and care for ourselves. Taking time to focus on our breath—both during quiet times of meditation and throughout the day—restores our balance and inner peace.
