“Do not be afraid”


The real reason why your meditation isn’t always successful is this – and I’m not mistaken! You begin your meditation worried and anxious. This is enough for you never to find what you are looking for, because your mind isn’t focussed on the truth you are meditating on and there is no love in your heart. This worry is useless. All you get from it is a great spiritual fatigue and a kind of coldness of soul, especially at the feeling level. I don’t know any other cure for it except to come out of this anxiety. Indeed, it’s one of the greatest obstacles to religious practice and the life of prayer. It makes us rush to trip over.

I honestly don’t want to dispense you from meditation simply because it seems to you that you don’t get any result from it. To the extent you create an emptiness in you – indeed, that you free yourself humbly from this attachment – our Lord will give you the gift of prayer he keeps in his right hand.
