My default has always been logic. Yeah, not so helpful right now. But in a chanting workshop with Nina Rao the other day, she mentioned advice given by her own guru, whenever Nina would come to her for counsel.
“Don’t think. Do your prayers. Find the answers in your own heart.”
If we’ve lived our entire lives by thinking things through, this can be hard to accept. And challenging. It involves trusting in the Divine. And it involves trusting in our own hearts.
Prayer is simply activating a connection with the Divine…or the divine in ourselves. It can take many forms.
As a young Catholic girl I memorized prayer that had little true meaning to me. As an adult, I read more contemporary prayers written to reflect how we speak today. But at this stage of my life, chanting is my prayer. So is simply talking to the Divine. Or to my own heart. Meditation can be prayer.
It may be counter-intuitive to advise don’t think when faced with a decision. But our hearts are wiser than we might imagine.
And of course, so is the Divine.
