Something I have played with occasionally over the years has been a form of prayer I label, making love with god.
I describe it like this. It is silent and feeling based. Non-verbal.
Express love to god.
Desire god to love you.
Push back and forth against god with your love,
Feeling a love for gods love that causes an inflowing of gods love for you.
For some time I have thought of this prayer practice as very profound, some of my most satisfying experiences of interaction with god have come from this method.
I have been wanting to improve my method, something I achieved today.
I was sitting in a cinema waiting for a film to start and I was inspired to pray for god to be able to love me without my asking for it.
This involved an emotional process of unlocking that was frightening at some points, it felt vulnerable to relinquish my control of when god could give me love.
there was a feeling of reaching a level of completion with this unlocking process, and.
Now all I have to do to receive love from god abundantly is to love god.
Any additional asking for love is a bonus.
Although some of the language used in this post is kinda sexy, up until now I have never had a sex based interaction with god. The feelings are purely loving and non sexual.
