Begin by seeking silence.
.
For this, come home to yourself. Come to the present. Ask yourself: where am I right now? What am I doing? What am I thinking? What am I sensing in my body? What is the quality of my breathing?
.
Silence cannot be induced or sought directly. Just seek awareness –  and silence will appear.
.
If you now wish to communicate with God within this silence Imagine that you surrender, let go, each time you breathe out –          that each exhalation is your way of saying yes to God. Yes to what you are today –          to the kind of person God has made you, the kind of person you have become. Yes to the whole of your past. Yes to what lies in store for you in the future.
.
Let go each time you breathe out with the awareness that all will be well. Let all anxieties cease, And let peace take over, for in His hands, in His will, is our peace.
