My Lesson in humility (how to pray)

My Floor Jawers, if there is one thing that this year has taught me is that the incredulity of life is a funny game. Not funny ha ha, but rather funny “are you kidding me?”

I have learned many a lesson through my reading, writing and living and let me tell you something: it’s all bullshit. Shocking, I know. But here’s the clincher: nothing means anything until you know yourself.

Once again you are rolling your eyes as JAW descends into the mire of spirituality and consciousness, but it makes sense. My issue with prayer is an issue for this very reason. People assume that it is about God. It is not. If you think it is, then you are misguided. Prayer is about getting in touch with yourself and changing your own aura. When you get on your knees and humble yourself (if you are Christian, you may add “before God” to that sentence) and get to know yourself. Whoever you “pray” to is inconsequential.

This is about you.

I have spoken previously about the idea of density and striving for a free and light spirit. Remember, translucent, not transparent. You want things to pass through you, not for you to go unnoticed and let people walk right through you.

Forgive yourself. Not even others, because they don’t matter.

If you are constantly thinking and always angry, think about it for a second, then get on your knees and speak to yourself and ask yourself “What Is it?”

Whatever happened in your past, whether you were 6, 16 or 60, forgive yourself. Because forgiving others is giving them power. Forgiving them is, again, inconsequential and totally your choice.

My Floor Jawers, I am in an inspirational mood and I hope you are all lapping this up today. You are worth more than you know and don’t you forget it. Unfortunately people and circumstances have a way of getting to us.  That’s ok. As long as we have the ability to recognise this and know that it is transient.

Who says we can’t borrow from science? Think of prayer as your spiritual laxative. Many people I know oppose writing out their feelings because then “it becomes real”. Well I’ll be darned! Isn’t that the idea? When it becomes real, it is tangible and you get to tackle it head on. You can’t mould water, but you can shape ice.

So if you are reading this and you are still pretending that the world is against you and that everyone is out to get you… stop it.  Leave the dramatics to a real drama queen, like me. Please. Get in touch with who you want to be and don’t even try going for the bad version because you feel that that is what you are worth. Uncle JAW is watching and he doles out hidings good and proper.

It’s like George Eliot said: “It’s never too late to be who you might have been”. Now that is a smart man! *

* I know George Eliot was not really a man, but what were his parents thinking?!
