More on Mental Prayer
For reference, here is a link to my first post about mental prayer. There is a lot of good information there for people who are interested in Christian meditation. I am growing more convinced that, while Buddhist meditation is helpful for non-believers, it is dangerous for believers to rely too heavily on these methods. Sure, many of the things I learned as a Buddhist are helpful on my new path but I have tried to leave behind anything that conflicts with a God-centred approach. We cannot become truly enlightened if we ignore our Creator. The Church has all the tools Christians need if we can just find them and use them diligently.
I am posting this for my own records, and to provide some supplementary information for those who want to see more. The first video serves as an introduction to the second. You can probably watch the second without watching the first one but I wouldn’t recommend it. The videos only seem to have one audio channel working so I’ve found it best to watch them on a tablet without headphones.
Here is a link to the resource mentioned in the second video. It appears that the transcriptions there are not quite all finished yet. However, the scanned image of the source book is there as well, so you can see the original version of the missing texts.
