Teresa of Avila instructed to begin one's relationship in small steps, by talking to the Eternal You in small daily moments. I wake up and say, "hello". That's a prayer. I can add, or not. I go through my day, and I have a small moment of peace. I say "Thank You". That's another prayer. If I add to it, I add, or I don't. It has helped me. :stu (These mystics are so... mystical! :b)pm5kbebop said:i dont attend church so maybe this plays into it...i feel like a fraud when i pray....like i only run to religion when im in terrible shape mentally....anyone else feel this way sometimes?
