Through Centering Prayer some changes were happening... I started to know people much better and accept people also... the way they were... not the way that I wanted them to be and probably the obvious example is with my children.  I always wanted them to be this way and this way, and now, ‘you are who you are and I respect you,’ which is a big improvement because they are very happy about that too.


Gracias a la Oración Centrante se producían algunos cambios…empecé a conocer mucho mejor a las personas y también a aceptarlas… tal como eran… no de la forma que yo quería que fueran, y probablemente el ejemplo más obvio fue con mis hijos. Siempre quise que fueran de tal o cual manera, y ahora, “ustedes son como son y yo los respeto”, lo que significa un gran avance, porque eso también los hace muy felices.
