Permission?

In meditation, debate has no place. We rest quietly with the thoughts or prayers of spiritually centered people who understand, so that we may experience and learn. ~ AA World Services Inc. As Bill Sees It. A.A. World Services, Inc. Kindle Edition.

I needed this thought!
I know how to pray.
But meditation?
Alas, the Disciples failed to say,
“Teach us to meditate.”
And there’s a dearth of models
though ample recordings
that allow too much
or too little verbiage.
Debate within my head
has no place? What else is there
as I sit quietly with
or without a soundtrack?
“the thoughts or prayers
of spiritually centered people
who understand,
so that we may experience and learn?”
The Saint Francis Prayer,
the Book of Common Prayer,
the standards I use everyday,
Serenity, Step One, Step Seven…
and the bedevilments on page 52
of the Big Book, “We had to ask…”
and the responsive promises
spanning pages 83-84.
These I can consider
so that I may experience and learn.
Thanks, Bill W!!
