Concentration, Meditation, and Prayer

Next meeting: May 25, 2015 5:30pm-7pm

 Concentration, Meditation, and Prayer:
       Recipes for serving Spirit
(No fees, no offerings, no proselytizing)

                                             2nd and 4th Mondays, 5:30-7pm

370 Royal Avenue
Simi Valley CA 93065

Please feel welcome to arrive and to leave at any time during the 90 minute meeting.

For the most part, the time we share serves to promote silent sitting, introspection, and intuitive insight among persons of good will. Techniques and skillsets from all traditions and direct personal experience are encouraged.

To aid that process the first and last 15 minutes may be facilitated by guest speakers.

There is never a fee of any kind, nor are offerings accepted, nor is there ever any proselytizing.

(Oh, and do please consider bringing with you–and then taking home as you leave–any photo, object, book or other special item which you find valuable or sacred, so it may be placed on our mutual table to absorb and resonate our group’s well-wishes.)

Chairs available; cushion suggested

humabyrd notes a fall in Light…… (Jeff Buckley: New Years Prayer)


“fall in light, fall in light.
fall in light, fall in light. 
feel no shame for what you are

  as you now are in your heart 
  fall in light 
  feel no shame for what you are 
  feel no shame for what you are 
  feel it as a waterfall 
fall in light, ooh.
fall in light, fall in light,
fall in light, ooh. 
fall in light, fall in light fall in light,
grow in light.

      stand absolved behind your electric chair, dancing.
      stand absolved behind your electric chair, dancing. 
      past the sound within the sound. 
      past the voice within the voice. 
ah. ah. ah. 

           leave your office, run past your funeral, 
           leave your home, car , leave your pulpit.
            join us in the streets where we
            join us in the streets where we don’t belong.. 
don’t belong. 
you and the stars throwing light.

oooooo fall, fall.
       oooooo fall in, fall in light. 
             fall in light, ooo. 
                   fall in light, fall in light 
                              fall in light.

grow in light.

Merrily, ye olde English grammar oft doth sticketh in the craw like unto a nutshell

“Verily, the prayers are enjoined on the believers at stated times”  

That earlier style of  scriptural English might be read today as `Please note the established times in which muslims are admonished to pray’

Or it could be read to mean:

`Note this well: for Islam the five prayers during their stated times are obligatory.”
