The following prayer came to me one night as I sat contemplating faith and well-being.
I and the Father are One.
Whose name sings between the birds of the air.
Whose mind rings through the deepest oceans of the Earth
and the blood of our bodies.
The Heavens which are your abode are within
and walk this world through my own temple.
I know you in the scent of the Summer roses
and in the icy Winters before my soul grows in the Spring.
In Autumn your love ripens my heart.
There is none other but you
and I faithfully seek to walk ever in your light.
In light I know I am of you
and all that you are is all I have ever needed.
My temple is yours.
My life is ever always yours.
Forgive me when I forget.
You are the river of my life
and I am your water.
Your course is mine
through deserts, under lofty trees
beneath the moon and starlight
in drought or flood
you are the radiant river of my life
That runs through my body, mind and heart.
As you contemplate these words, engage your imagination and the feeling of your body. Prayers, like poetry, can only change us if we engage our whole being in the experience of what the words indicate. Take your time with each line and even each word and let flood your awareness, drowning out all the nonsensical stress of your life. Remember. Find what’s important.
Please listen and meditate on the following recording for a guided experience.
Aim to remember and live these words throughout your day.
