The second step, centering (please click on centering to learn more about centering), I believe can be interchangeable with the first step of prayer in learning how to "be" in the "doing". What is centering prayer you ask? Centering is when a person sits in quietness longing for there human spirit to collide with the divine spirit causing an explosion deep within one's soul. Alright, maybe not a literal explosion, but a burst of fire erupts deep within. The flame of God through His Holy Spirit can not be squelched, love exudes to overflowing, and we begin to show outwardly Christ in us the hope of glory!

Our thoughts become His thoughts and a more thankful heart arises. Our eyes begin to see like they have never seen before. We look at people no matter what color or class with the knowledge that God loves them just as much as He does our self. Our feet become His...our hands an extension of his nail pierced palms...and we set about to do the work God has placed before us. We embark to discover our true self and embrace it. We become very aware of our purpose from the Creator who breathed life into us. This serve and not be served and to find and help the lost sheep and lovingly corral them back home to the Great Shepherd. Lastly, the only chains that hold us are the chains we are in to be ambassadors for the sake of Jesus Christ!

"And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message,
 so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains."
Colossians 4:3 (NIV)
