Seven Ways of Praying

I am adapting this from something I read on Richard Rohr's daily posting. It is from The Seven Homecomings taught by Tibetan Buddhist Lama Rod Owens, You are to let this practice change to meet your needs.

1. The first homecoming is of the guide. Reflect on any being who has been a guide, a teacher, a mentor, an advisor, an elder for you. Invite them to gather around you in a circle and say welcome. Relax. Inhale. Exhale. Come home to being held by your guides.

2. The second homecoming is your wisdom tests. Reflect on any text that has helped you to deepen your wisdom. These texts can include any writings, books, teachings, Scriptures that have helped you to experience clarity, openness, love, and compassion...Say welcome to your texts. Inhale. Exhale. Come home to being held by your wisdom texts.

3. The third homecoming is community. Begin by reflecting about the communiteis, groups, and spaces where you experience love or the feeling of being accepted and supported in being happy. Where do you feel safe to love? Where are you being loved? Say welcome to your communities. Relax, Inhale. Exhale and come home to being held by your communities.

I shall save the others for tomorrow as you have plenty to ponder with these three.
