I hadn't known who Susan Stabile was before listening to this video yesterday, I will be ordering her book. The path she talks about sounded so familiar to me. I also have used Buddhist techniques with Jewish-Christian "objects" for meditation instead of the neutral ones that I was taught to use by a Buddhist practitioner. For me that has made all the difference.
Recently someone who read a passing reference I made to that asked me what I did. Well, to start with I've never found sitting meditation does much but make me either fall asleep or concentrate on the discomfort and boredom of sitting down - as if we don't all do too much of that anyway. I use a form of walking meditation taught by a student of Titch Nhat Hanh. You coordinate your walking pace with your natural breathing rate and you either concentrate on the experience of breathing or on some "object" of meditation, a word, an experience, an idea. And I found that was useful but it wasn't until I started using passages from the scriptures or paraphrases of those that I felt like I was getting anywhere. The current one I'm using now is from the Letter of John, "Whoever loves God must also love his brother." Especially since he's been living with me, it's kept me from wringing my brother's neck any number of times in the past year. You would not believe how annoying a dying alcoholic can get even when he's trying to be good. I'd better order the book as soon as I'm done with this.
Another thing I've done is to slow down the Lord's Prayer, phrase by phrase, coordinating it with breathing in and breathing out. It makes it an entirely different experience. I might try slowing it down more. I'd rather be mindful of those things than the self-generated objects of "mindfulness"as seen in the Hollywood school of Buddhism.
