By the Hour, I Stared…

By the hour, I stared at the St. Francis Prayer: “It is better to comfort than to be comforted.” ~ AA World Services Inc. As Bill Sees It. A.A. World Services, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

How do you learn to meditate?
What does it take to go from prayers, rote
or otherwise with the idea
of conquering meditation?
I’ve tried meditation apps
but they fail to lasso my mind.
Writing works better
but even writing to God
feels like it’s cheating.
With Bill W. speaking
surely it’s a valid approach.
“It is better to comfort
than to be comforted.”
…to be understood as to understand
…To be loved as to love
…For it is in giving that we receive
…it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
…And it’s in dying that we are born to eternal life.
I’ll give it a try today.
Do you need to as well?
