the style of which I'd like to assume. More sincere, straight from the heart. I can't get over the stigma I've attached to praying with a hearty round of tyjs/tyls/hals/ptls/tongues then droning on using familiar fam words like "precious", "mindful", "prayerful"---words that are harmless in themselves but carry such a bad memory for me. It came to a point whereby I started missing God and my conversations with him because I couldn't get an unadulterated word out. It was very frustrating for awhile.
Now I take quiet moments, slow my heartbeat, breathe deeply, relax and just BE. Then when I'm all quiet and still, the images come, sometimes the words. Calm, peace...I feel more in tune with God, the Great Spirit, whatever you want to call him. It takes a lot of discipline to just be. Yoga makes a lot of sense.
