Christopher Germer in his book about self-compassion talks about going inside while focusing on one's breathe, and using phrases to comfort one's self when one is struggling. During one "tough patch" I decided to use a walk as a way to try and get in touch with my own center. I have trouble sometimes practicing what I preach, and sometimes getting outside and getting into nature helps me center.
The phrases were loosely based on the metta phrases that come out of the Buddhist tradition. I framed them in the context of my own faith, but one could change the first two phrases in many ways, to fit many different forms of spirituality.
At any rate, I thought I might share them. Play with them. See if they might have some meaning for you.
May I find the Christ within
