...Prayers for Relaxation and Rest, Techniques and Quotes continues from 10 Ways of Finding Peace
Spirituality tells us that somehow we are already at rest.
Spiritual relaxation techniques such as prayers for relaxation help the blocks to our awareness of God's rest to melt away.
Rest is intrinsic to our nature.
Rest is what we are and where we are in God.
Believe me. I know it can feel hard to believe this.
I found myself stuck in a body for 14 years. It felt like my body was in a constant state of activity - the muscles flicking, the feelings of illness churning.
Nonetheless, I came to experience the joy of this peace that passes understanding. You can too.

Here are some more spiritual quotes from A Course In Miracles on resting in God:
“‘I rest in God.’
This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek.
‘I rest in God.’
This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is....
‘I rest in God.’
Completely undismayed, this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God. There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem that it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.
This is the day of peace. You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate your rest remains completely undisturbed. Yours is the rest of truth. Appearances cannot intrude on you.”
Here are some Bible verses about resting in God:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
(Matthew 11:28-30, KJV esword)
“For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest.”
(Hebrews 4:10-11, KJV esword)
To rest in God is to let go for a moment of believing that change can only come from DOING something.
We enter into God's rest.
We spend time in that place where everything is ALREADY DONE. We can relax.
