Basically in contemplative prayer you’re taking your particular localized energy of the Ultimate Reality, just as you are, and letting go of all secondary things and are just being in the presence of that which is the most real part of one’s being.  And, some traditions call this the self, or the True Self, which is this presence of the infinite energy or creative energy of God manifesting in our particular form of creaturehood.  And so in prayer we just relax into who we already are.


En la Oración nos Relajamos y Volvemos a Ser lo que ya Somos.

En la oración contemplativa simplemente tomamos nuestra energía particular y localizada  que es parte de la Realidad Última, tal como somos, soltamos todas las cosas secundarias,  y estamos en presencia de aquello que es lo más real de nuestro ser. Algunas tradiciones lo llaman el yo, o el verdadero Yo, que es la presencia de la energía infinita o energía creativa de Dios, que se manifiesta por medio de nuestra  criatura en particular. Así, en la oración simplemente nos relajamos y volvemos a ser lo que ya somos.
