English Transcript: 

Since I’ve started practicing Centering Prayer, everything about my being is just able to see new things, new aspects of unpleasant situations that I would have just ran away from before. I feel that if humanity was very receptive to more contemplative practices like Centering Prayer that could neutralize a lot of the negative emotional energy that charges conflicts and disputes and disagreements and help find a neutral ground between people in that silent space. I feel like this could overtime as more people meet the prayer they could really just find commonality in that silent space and find more harmony amongst one another.

El silencio y la búsqueda de la armonía

Desde que empecé a practicar la Oración Centrante, todo en mi es capaz de ver nuevas cosas, nuevos aspectos de las situaciones desagradables de las que antes hubiera huido. Siento que si la humanidad estuviera más receptiva a prácticas contemplativas como la Oración Centrante eso podría neutralizar mucha de la energía emocional negativa que alimenta conflictos, disputas y desacuerdos, y ayudaría a las personas a encontrar un terreno neutral en esa paz silenciosa. Siento que, con el tiempo, a medida que más personas conocieran la oración, podrían encontrar realmente algo que las uniera en esa paz del silencio, y sentir que existe más armonía entre ellos.
