WHAT IF PRAYER IS A PLACE?
I am curious about prayer.
And I pray.
I have no grand theological surety or answers.
I have my own experience.
And I read and read and read about religions and the sacred and that”kind of stuff”. I am hungry and feed myself on every spiritual food available.
I have been reading about prayer.
You pray it, there’s a name for it.
There are as many kinds of named prayers as there are names for “God”
Like usual, I dove into the topic til I emerged glutted and confused.
So once again, back to my own experience.
Prayer to me is a place I go.
I use silence and readings to take me there.
It is not meditative emptiness.
It is my home base.
When I “arrive”, there is peace and contentment even when my life is a mess.
There is a sense of timelessness.
I feel re-aligned. Truer to myself.
Prayer is a place I go to.
