For the first several years after the initial opening, my practices were simple and heartfelt. They consisted of resting with what’s here, notice all as awakeness (Spirit, the divine, intelligence, love), gratitude for whatever happened, prayer, Heart/Jesus prayer, Christ meditation, tonglen, and giving it all over to Spirit. All of these happened very naturally.
Then, I got “sidetracked” by traditions and teachers with ideas of how things should be done.
And now, I am hoping to find back to a more natural and simple approach. For instance, giving it all over to the divine.
Notice. Notice what’s here – emotions, stories, the fear or wounds behind them.
Rest with what’s here. Take time resting with and as it.
Give it all over to Spirit. To the divine.
There is a beautiful simplicity in this. It’s a reminder that all is Spirit. And it doesn’t exclude any other approach or exploration.
