Daily Spiritual Practice
"Besides praying to the gods, there are other ways you can adapt this stage of Lectio Divina to a spirituality grounded in nature. If prayer is simply a form of reverent conversation, then you might feel moved by your observation and meditation on nature to converse with the many beings around you — even beings with whom you might not normally strike up a conversation. If you’re feeling inspired by your spiritual work, you can speak with the robins about the coming spring, or converse with the tree that stands tall and patient in your backyard to learn what lessons it has to teach you. You might even feel moved to speak out loud, to tell your own story to the waterfall or the evening breeze." ~Allison Leigh Lilly
In this step, we consider prayer and what that might mean for those of us with a less traditional spirituality or spiritual practice. Your own conversations might be with the trees, or the moon, or your spirit animal guides.
What might that look like for you? How would you incorporate this step into your own daily spiritual practice?
