Jesus Retreat, Week 4

by: Erin Forge't-Wells

08/27/2018

If you are strolling out of doors alone, you can recall God at least once every minute with no effort, if you remember that “beauty is the voice of God.” Every flower and tree, river and lake, mountain and sunset is God speaking. “This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears all nature sings …” So as you look at each lovely thing, you may keep asking: “Dear Father, what are you telling me through this, and this, and this?”

If you are strolling out of doors alone, you can recall God at least once every minute with no effort, if you remember that “beauty is the voice of God.” Every flower and tree, river and lake, mountain and sunset is God speaking. “This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears all nature sings …” So as you look at each lovely thing, you may keep asking: “Dear Father, what are you telling me through this, and this, and this?”

If you have wandered to a place where you can talk aloud without being overheard, you may speak to the Invisible Companion inside you or beside you. Ask Him what is most on His heart and then answer back aloud with your voice what you believe God would reply to you.

Of course we are not always sure whether we have guessed God’s answer right, but it is surprising how much of the time we are very certain. It really is not necessary to be sure that our answer is right, for the answer is not the great thing—He is! God is infinitely more important than His advice or His gifts; indeed, He, himself, is the great gift. The youth in love does not so much prize what his sweetheart may say or may give him, as the fact that she is his and that she is here. The most precious privilege in talking with God is this intimacy which we can have with Him. We may have a glorious succession of heavenly minutes. How foolish people are to lose life’s most poignant joy, seeing it may be had while taking a walk alone!

But the most wonderful discovery of all is, to use the words of St. Paul, “Christ liveth in me.” He dwells in us, walks in our minds, reaches out through our hands, speaks with our voices, if we obey his every whisper.

This week's retreat exercise is called "Mindfull Eating"-

An exercise shared by Vinita Hampton Wright (loyolapress.com)

This week's retreat exercise is called "Mindfull Eating"-

An exercise shared by Vinita Hampton Wright (loyolapress.com)

Today, or sometime soon, practice mindful eating and drinking. It’s not difficult, but it does take some time and the willingness to focus and be still. Here are some ideas.

Choose one thing to eat. Maybe it’s an apple or a cucumber. Maybe it’s a slice of whole grain bread. Or a portion of slow-cooked roast. Maybe it’s your favorite cupcake. Arrange it on a plate to make it attractive. Slice the fruit or vegetable, drizzle honey on the bread, or sauce over the meat. In other words, if you were serving this to someone how would you present it so that the experience was pleasant and beautiful?

Then go to a place where you will be undisturbed. Get settled comfortably. Take some time to look at what is on the plate. And allow yourself to smell the aroma of it.

Then give thanks for the food. Give thanks to the Creator who made it possible. But don’t stop there. Give thanks to every person ever involved so that you could eat this apple or this cupcake. Someone tended the tree, harvested the fruit, sorted, packed, shipped and so on. Someone arrived probably very early in the morning at the bakery and kneaded the bread dough or mixed the cupcake. Some truck driver too, was involved, to deliver ingredients to the bakery or cupcakes to the grocery store. Give thanks also to the non-humans who made your food possible. Some chicken laid the egg to make the cupcake so fluffy. Some cow was butchered so that you could put the roast in the oven and eat it now. And there were humans who tended the chicken and the cow. Say a prayer for every being involved in this food on your plate. Ask grace upon all the workers that their conditions be good ones. That their involvement with food be wholesome and cooperative and not cruel and wasteful. Ask for clean, safe workplaces and humane, respectful treatment of any animals involved.

Are you beginning to see a whole lot more than the apple, or cupcake or roast?

Then eat this food. Eat it slowly, one small bite at a time. Savor every bite. Hold it in your mouth and identify every nuance of flavor and texture. This food is keeping you alive. This food is a great gift. This food is sacred.

When you have finished eating, then spend a few more moments in gratitude. In some traditions, grace is said after the meal. It’s not a bad idea to say it before and after. It’s probably impossible to be too mindful or too grateful.

Retreat with Jesus!

May this be a time of greater depth of faith, expanse of peace, and passion for the journey! Try this exercise this week:

Imagine you see Jesus sitting close to you. In doing this, you are putting your imagination at the service of your faith: Jesus obviously isn't here in the way you imagine him to be but he is here all right, and your imagination helps to make this real for you.

Now speak to Jesus...If no one is around, speak out in a soft voice...

Imagine what Jesus says in reply...
