So many of us, myself included, spend our lives meeting its day-to-day challenges the best we can. Circumstances don’t always allow for a thoughtful consideration of how we can make our lives more meaningful and fulfilling. Sometimes a crisis precipitates a change, sometimes we just can’t keep pushing ourselves to continue doing the same job we hate or stay in a loveless marriage. We hit the wall, so to speak.
I’ve felt for a while that the best way to get to the other side of my own knotty issues would be through meditation or some sort of contemplative practice. That by stilling my worried mind a path would emerge. Lately, all my spiritual wanderings keep bringing me back to St. Ignatius. And so, I surrender. I’m saying yes to St. Ignatius by taking part in the Ignatian Prayer Adventure, an on-line retreat provided by Ignatian Spirituality.com. If you would like to join me you can do so here.
