Give Us This Day

My daily spiritual practice consists mostly of being and being aware of being. I ‘do’ other things: meditate (sort of), read scripture (theoretically 2 pages a day), pray (if I remember). But this is my real commitment: open awareness. Without this nothing else signifies. I receive much quiet ecstasy this way, especially lying on the couch looking out the window at the trees against the sky, lying on the couch conversing with Larry, lying on the couch listening to music, lying on the couch looking out the window at the trees against the sky. Of course I receive other feelings too; the commitment is to be open to all—even the existential quavering that sometimes takes me.
