Each “self” has its own way of connecting with Source. The mental body likes to meditate and think on God … the emotional self wants to feel an intimate relationship with Source so ritual and song, chanting and bliss generating meditations are designed to allow the emotional body ways to “worship” Source. The physical responds well to yoga, tai chi – even belly dance becomes union with Source when we set our intention on spiritual alignment as we move.
It doesn’t matter whether your daily practice consists of prayer or zen sitting, yoga, Tai chi or ecstatic dance, art, reading or writing prose, studying Biblical verse or the Vedas – whatever brings you into a deeper spiritual connection counts. Combine any of the many alignment techniques into a practice that works for you and then commit to it. Your spiritual practice shapes the inner vessel that navigates you through the emotional waters of life to a place of new possibility based on a relationship of oneness with Source.
