Forms of prayer

 

What is prayer?

For me, it’s what happens when I have a prayerful orientation. When there is some receptivity and sincerity in me, a somewhat open heart, and an orientation towards all of existence as the divine.

This means any moment can be a prayer. And any activity can be a prayer.

Prayer can also happen through any form of meditation, any form of mindful movement, any form of heart-centered practice.

Prayer can also happen with words. I may pray for an external situation to shift. Or I may pray for receptivty, clarity, an open heart, and for a situation to deeply transform me.

In any case, it’s the divine locally (as us) having a prayerful attitude towards itself as the divine as the fullness of existence. It’s all happening within and as the One. It may even be a part of the process of the divine locally gradually waking up to itself as a local expression of the One.

Initial draft….

There are many forms of prayer.

In a way, just living with some sincerity, receptivity, and heart is a prayer.

Any form of meditation can be a prayer, especially when done with some sincerity and receptivity.

And we can also ask for shifts. We can also for shifts in a situation. Or we can ask for a situation to transform us.

In a way, just living with some curiosity, receptivity, and heart is a prayer.

Any form of meditation can be a prayer, especially when done with some sincerity and receptivity. . For instance… Notice what’s here in the sense fields, allow it to be as it is, and notice it’s already allowed. (Natural Rest, Shikantaza.) Or notice and shift into that which we already are (Big Mind process, headless experiments). Or notice all as consciousness.
