Learn to sit quietly and get in touch with your intuition. There are lots of distractions both inside and outside that interfere with sensing delicate promptings from within.

Outside there are distractions in the form of all manner of people and media that vie for your attention. Inside there are thoughts and imaginings that rise up to carry you away with them. Worse yet, there is also a will operating through some people and through those thoughts that arise that doesn’t want you to find yourself, that doesn’t want you to be still and get in touch with your Creator.

So there are some powerful and seductive forces aligned against your coming to God. But remember what Christ said “I have overcome the world.” He will help you overcome every temptation. All you have to do is find and then take advantage of the meditative path to God. He gives you the little meditation—not just any meditation but the simple one (such as we teach here at Shedding Shackles).

So basically all you have to do is drag yourself to a chair, close your eyes, sit quietly, observe the delicate light on the inside of your eyelids, and at the same time notice and pay attention to your fingertips. What could be simply than that?
