Prayer is a good way to start. Like most people, music and more importantly sound does things to me. We learnt sanskrit prayers during yoga,it took me some time to come around to saying them but now when I do I get this indescribable feeling- it just feels right- I don’t know how else to explain it.
Now when I want to make important decisions I try to get into that state of mind that I’m in yoga class when we begin to say prayers together.
“Let me to connect to divinity, let me to connect to source, let me me connect to my inspiration, let me connect to all that is good about me and if not about me about someone or something else- so that my decisions are proactive rather than reactive and that what I do knowing I am responsible for my actions.”
Prayer is an affirmation of what exists as well as a hope. I pray to myself because there are aspects of divinity in all of us and then sometimes I pray to connect to things outside of me , because sometimes it’s hard to see divine things in oneself.I don’t want to write about only good things or be continually positive but I want to write from a sane place- that is my endeavour and that is my prayer.
