Meditate or pray: it’s the same thing if you do it right
The Seventh Petal in The Vida Lotus System is to Meditate or pray: Open your mind and your heart to the divine truth that penetrates you and the entire universe. The more profoundly you observe everything, the more your consciousness can evolve, and this will lead you to be healthier and happier. Meditation means deep observation. We need to go deeper than the five notorious senses that can trap us in the physical realm and prevent us from understanding our spiritual mission. In the same way, true prayer is not about making a list of demands to the almighty, but rather, it’s about listening deeply, and responding with your actions.
