A PRAYER FOR YOUR WILD SOUL
Give yourself time to make a prayer that will become the prayer of your soul. Listen to the voices of longing in your soul. Listen to your hungers. Give attention to the unexpected that lives around the rim of your life. Listen to your memory and to the inrush of your future, to the voices of those near you and those you have lost. Out of all of that attention to your soul, make a prayer that is big enough for your wild soul, yet tender enough for your shy and awkward vulnerability; that has enough healing to gain the ointment of divine forgiveness for your wounds; enough truth and vigour to challenge your blindness and complacency; enough graciousness and vision to mirror your immortal beauty. Write a prayer that is worthy of the destiny to which you have been called.

Excerpt from ETERNAL ECHOES
Only one thing made him happy
and now that it was gone
everything made him happy.
Quote: Leonard Cohen
I bless this day for the wonderful adventure it can become
as I walk through it with the eyes of wonder rather than boredom,
use every opportunity to express peace rather than irritation,
and choose love over fear.
Wonder, peace and love…
we act on each of these by choice. Conscious, alert and with intent, we move ahead – moment by moment- pinching ourselves to remember the world needs these elements to be well and for survival.
No matter the challenge, facing the irritation and fear that fills the very air we breathe is so important. Offering the spirit of peace and compassion will make the difference.
Take it slow. To live by example will change the world.
Quote: PIERRE PRADERVAND
The eyes of the future are looking back at us
and they are praying for us to see beyond our own time.
They are kneeling with hands clasped that we might act with restraint,
that we might leave room for the life that is destined to come.
