Compose yourself to Meditate

Composure must he obtained in two ways. First and chiefly, by the habitual repose of the soul in God. We must be living in continual fellowship with God. This habitual preparation is of the utmost consequence. If we are strangers to the Life of God, we cannot put ourselves, nor expect to be drawn, into the Life of God suddenly. Watchfulness in daily life helps us to contemplate God, and the habit of looking up to Him helps us to be watchful.
Fr Richard Meux Benson
