|01:14 am - Devotion|
to pray until your heart melts
and flows down as tears.
Such tears are more powerful than meditation...
They are verily the Ganges.
Man, I've felt that love... it's the most intense thing in the world. To be chanting or singing, or even just talking to God, and feel such overpowering love that you're reduced to an incoherent mess :P but to feel such incredible love is just as effective as meditation, because you still find God... you still feel his presence within you.
Following a simpler path seems to be more of a direct way to God than anything. Going through elaborate rituals, sadhana, meditation, living an austere life, etc- none of it is going to have any effect if you're only doing it because you think you have to, or fear something bad happening if you don't. Nothing will happen if you just say some words and going through stuff, with no real devotion or love infused with it. It seems those who have decided to just do whatever have truly felt divine prescence and love. As long as you put your heart into it, there's no wrong way to worship God. Go the traditional way or just do anything- they'll have the same effect if there's love present :)
... well, unless somehow you manage to feel divine love while beating puppies or something of the sort. Please, just no. You're just scary then.
