Mirror meditation

In the Letter of James, we are told that the Scriptures are like a mirror in which we can see ourselves. In this type of meditation we take a piece of Scripture, hold it before us and consider what echoes within our heart. These echoes help us to see who we are before God and how we are loved.

What usually echoes in us are situations that we are dealing with in our lives. When something strikes us, we do not actively try to solve the situation or work it through. Rather we sit holding it in God's love. The point of such a meditation is to make space within the situation for God's love to be. In 'sitting with' such a situation, painful or sad, we come to recognise the love of God that is at work on our lives.

The suggestions for Mirror reflections can also be used for Exercise reflections but wouldn't be advised for Driving Prayer as often some degree of emotion or distraction might rise in such prayer.

This Sunday's Mirror Meditation

Rest in the love of your God.

This Sunday's Gospel shows four inadequate ways of being 'disciple': the ones who act with anger at insult, the one who treats it like an adventure, and the two who only accept to follow Jesus if he does not disturb their lives too much.

As you sit quietly, ponder what your discipleship is like. How does Jesus and his demands influence your life? What are your strong areas? What do you think are your weak areas? Ask Jesus where he would want you to grow and follow.

Rest in the love of your God.
