Day 20

Saturday is more of a day of rest. There is no online Mass I can watch so I normally take it easy in the morning. So I have feed the cat, prayed and meditated, and then had porridge for breakfast. I am listening to a relaxation playlist on Spotify and having a cup of tea. I am super relaxed at the moment!

I had a couple of nightmares last night. I had different food yesterday and I assume that it has something to do with it. These nightmares were more like the ones I used to have in the past – extremely vivid and confusing. I am never sure if they were a dream or reality when I wake up.

As a result I was awake at 4:00am. I decided to listen to a podcast rather than get up because I am lazy! The podcast reflected upon the Road to Emmaus and I was struck by the last verse:

They said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?”

Luke 24:32

An encounter that leads to complete surrender. I have run away from my emotions most of my life – tried to hide them in logic and traditionalism. But, to be honest, the only thing I have ever wanted is to be passionately in love with Jesus. Or, in the words of Luke, for my heart to burn within me.

So there you go!
