Prayer is about you talking to God, meditation is about you listening to God. To listen to God, first Be Still. Then allow yourself to still the chatter in your mind. Allow your mind’s chatter to go on and on without any response or action from you. Let these thoughts simply go into the ether unanswered by you. Eventually, your mind will calm down and be still. Now listen, really listen, ensuring your breathing is regular -in and out, in and out, in and out. If you cannot hear anything, then simply relax and have no expectations. The stillness is your reward. Perhaps there will come a time in your regular meditations that you will feel something, or hear something, or see something, or sense something. Be still and know that I am God. Meditation opens up the doorway into bliss. Bliss is happiness without a reason to be happy.
