"Heavenly Father, Open my heart to the silent presence of the Spirit of your Son.
Lead me into that mysterious silence where your love is received by all who call.
MARANATHA -- Come, Lord Jesus.
Begin repeating to yourself this one word (often called a mantra): `MA-RA-NA-THA', keeping the accent equally on each syllable. Do this throughout the time of prayer, which is usually 30 minutes, twice a day. Whenever you find thoughts or images coming to your mind, return to the mantra. If you are distracted from this repetition, gently return to it as soon as you are aware you have been distracted."

This quote is from John Main (1926-1982), a benedictine Monk, recently re-discovered by the emerging types. Main learned how to meditate from a "swami," and this is one of his favorite meditations.
