Every morning, I take a 1/2 hour and pray and meditate in the small chapel we have where I stay in Spokane. Prayer is connected to the word listening. It is a deep listening to one’s self and to what is beyond one’s self. Quite often, insights I had not considered appear at that quiet time that is set aside just to listen deeply in the silences between the words I say.
“Pray unceasingly that all denial be stripped from your mind. Pray that something miraculous be born within us all. Give everything you have. Do not wait another day. Lay your hours and intellect, your heart and passion, upon the altar of self-transformation and collective awakening. Begin now: pray, believe, trust and act.” ~Ann Mortifee, In Love With The Mystery
Lead me God, to a destiny that outshines my history. I am willing to release my expectations based on the past and know a better future. I open my mind to the new and the better. I live in a universe far grander than I can imagine. I do my best and leave the rest to God.
