In my teens and twenties, before my Zen days, one of my main practices was to invite and allow my soul and the divine to work on me. I gave myself – my human self – over to my soul and the divine. And I often did this through the Heart Prayer and the Christ meditation.
Looking back, I see that leaving myself started – in some ways – as I decided to let go of much of what really worked for me so I could be a “good Zen student”. So now, it feels like it’s time to return to what worked back then, in my days of “innocence” and before I tried to fit into a tradition.
How is it to invite and allow my soul, Christ and Spirit to work on me?
