Practice of the presence of God

I get a daily quote from Gratefulness.org and here is today’s quote.

“The time of business does not with me differ 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 tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament.” –Brother Lawrence–The Practice of the Presence of God.

Brother Lawrence states a truth not often appreciated that we can be in God’s presence while in the the presence of others in our work place or in our kitchen. It’s just a matter of insight and openness. There is in truth no dichotomy since the kingdom of God is within us. Peace.
