The Cup

We don't need a wide cup that takes in all sorts of prayers, devotionals and pious practices. These keep us focused on our thoughts as we chatter our prayers. We need a deep cup, a prayer without words, focused thoughts, or actions. This deep cup will take us to the ground or center of our soul, where we await God in silence and stillness. It is here at the Center of the Self we find God awaiting us.
It is a meeting of Love in which we ask for nothing but the Presence. God is beyond any good feelings we might have about God. Devotional practices, novenas, give us the good feelings. But God is not a feeling. God is more. Do less and you may come to union with the More.
