Rocking chairs have always been a part of my life. As a child, I had the traditional little red rocking chair. Next, I rocked my son sometimes to sleep. Now, I have a rocking chair on the porch, but my favorite is in my house–my Papa’s rocker. I watched a lot of Saturday night westerns sitting in his lap.
(I also believe rocking counts as a sort of ab crunches.)
What does this have to do with meditation? Prayer is talking to God and hopefully listening as well. Meditation is listening to God with your mouth shut and your mind focused. Rocking just kind of puts you there. Rock on!
