Contemplatio

God in my pulse.

God in my blood.

God in my thinking.

God in my seeing.

God in my smelling.

God in my tasting.

God in my feeling.

God in my pleasure.

God in my joy.

God in my sorrow.

God in my confusion.

God in my eating.

God in my digesting.

God in my organs processing.

God in my brooding.

God in my learning.

God at my birth.

God in my first kiss.

God everywhere I've lived.

God in my imagining.

God present when I don't feel like it.

God in my sleeping.

God in my dreaming.

God the ground of my being, in all.

(Based on the culminating meditation of the Ignatian Exercises, also called the Contemplatio.)

Thanks for sharing this. I think it will work it's way into our worship service next Sunday as we talk about Sabbath and try to cultivate a more contemplative worship experience for the day.
