Prayer. Meditation. Summary.

5 Step Prayer, or so is a great article by a wonderful blogger “In 2 Deep”

This article is a perfect summary of what a meditation or a prayer should be. Davidya walks you through the process, explains each step and provides references.

I find that if you are a beginner, it is helpful to get comfortable with the Silence – step number one, first. Take each step slowly, in the beginning, it helps me if I focus on my breath. If you are watching your breath, it becomes easier to go inside, to become present and to quiet your mind.

Personally, sometimes I just meditate and other times I meditate and transition into a prayer, where by prayer I mean talking to God.
I actually also like Eckhart Tolle’s advise. He suggests following “Who am I” meditation.
“Who am I? – Meditation mantra, favored by Ramana Maharshi. Repeat silently every 30 seconds & pay attention to the space after the question.”
I find it most helpful to focus, become present and quiet my mind, especially after a busy day, when it is hard to stop thinking. But it actually became a habit of mine to use Who am I every time as I start to meditate/pray.
So here is the article. Enjoy.
