I do a two way prayer, I write my prayer, meditate and then write a response from God. I remember one such prayer that ended with Him telling me: "Don't try to figure it out."
If only it were that easy to slow the mind. As of now, I've been unsuccessful in my goal to make meditation a daily practice. In fact I think I've attempted it, maybe, once this year. Time to shit or get off the pot I think.
See that? Thinking again. Fantasizing the freedom to row, row, row my boat gently down the stream. . .
