Recently, my son and I were asking if the hard and fast rules of meditation are really necessary. You know, erect posture, lotus legs, cushion on the floor. I conceded that I never found the realm of spirit particularly accessible to me under those conditions. It may work for some, and discipline means many things to many people, but I happily and without guilt eschew the mandates of “good” meditation procedure.
I am not saying these practices are wrong, they are just wrong me for me. For now. I reserve the right to change my mind. But I have had a constant conscious contact with a power greater than myself for more than 35 years. Actively. Honestly, without recognizing it, I was attuned to this practice of contact all of my life, and I have explored many paths in search of improving this connection.
