Although not much is said in the Big Book or the Twelve and Twelve about how to meditate, we are instructed to practice and become intuitive to the presence of God. ~ P., Bill; W., Todd; S., Sara. Drop the Rock: Removing Character Defects – Steps Six and Seven (p. 26). Hazelden Publishing. Kindle Edition.
“We are instructed to practice
and become intuitive
to the presence oof God.”
Intuitive? Usin’Godg or based on
what one feels to be true
even without conscious reasoning;
instinctive. Intuitive to the presence
of God? We just feel like God’s there?
I was there years before I came
to these Rooms of Recovery.
I would be walking or driving somewhere
and say aloud,”God!” That could get embarrassing
when I was absorbed and forgot
I was not alone. In fact, the event
making me consider myself an O.A. member
was getting in the car with unneeded sugary snacks
and telling God, “This is stupid!”
Other times, I will cross myself,
a rather incongruous act
for a dyed-in-the-wool Methodist.
I’m aware sitting here working through this
I’ve fretted for years about learning
how to meditate and all the time
it was a natural attitude for me,
just one need to acknowledge
and encourage and practice!
