So, OK, I don't pray. Not so much.
And I can't really say it's working out for me. But I was up at a conference in late summer at the Omega Institute and I heard somebody talk about the idea of at least, at the start of every day, thinking a thought that connects you to something meta - God, the higher power, the quantum field, whatever.
And I thought: I could do that. I should do that. And then I thought, what kind of wuss-bunny weak tea compromise is that? You can't even make a commitment to pray? To pray hopefully? You have to think a thought that connects you to something meta. Grown a spine, you pathetic bet-hedger. And then I thought: that's exactly the kind of self-recimination I am being urged to avoid here at this conference and in my something-meta-thinking.
Oh what a tangled web we weave when we approach something as simple as prayer with a spidery sideways scuttle.
