I respect the minutes in Centering Prayer – at least 20 minutes for each of the periods. Sometimes people don’t feel so sacred about the time that they’ve spent in Centering Prayer, but there are effects of it anyway. I get upset once in a while when the computer doesn’t do what I am expecting it should do but that kind of thing is becoming less and less. To me increasingly it becomes a receptivity of the love of God and development of love for God in return.


Respeto los minutos que me lleva la Oración Centrante – por lo menos 20 minutos en cada período. Algunas veces las personas no son tan estrictas respecto del tiempo que le dedican a la Oración Centrante, pero de todas maneras produce efecto. A veces me molesto cuando la computadora no hace lo que espero que haga, pero ese tipo de situaciones se dan cada vez menos. En mi caso cada vez más hay una receptividad al amor de Dios y un desarrollo del amor por Dios a cambio.
