We mean to focus our attention on God with us and to immerse ourselves in the beautiful, uplifting Love of the Trinity. For this we need to allow ourselves time and a space in which to be still and focus innerly, so that we can find our awareness and connection with God. This will become easier over time as we develop the art of contemplation and meditation. By seeking knowledge and by asking God to help show us His meaning, Wisdom and Intent, we believe it will be revealed in some way. God answers us on different levels, depending on how we hear, see, feel, relate to Him.
