Practice the Presence

"The time of business does not with me
from the time of prayer;
and in the noise and clatter
of my kitchen,
while several persons are at the same time
calling for different things,
I possess God
in as great tranquillity
as if I were upon my knees...
We should establish ourselves
in a sense of God's presence
by continually
conversing with Him."

- Brother Lawrence 1614-1691
The Practice of the Presence of God
