May healing and joy be with you, dear friends who visit and who share here on our Tuesday prayer day, and with all beyond.
Everything. It is not possible to leave something out. Even where I feel hurt, appreciation can be the door to understand deeper if I allow myself to stay open. Not easy, at least not for me. Still, it is a choice to appreciate and be grateful for everything and everyone I encounter. Life all inclusive, so to say.
To stay open in heart and mind helps to be more generous, I guess, and sharing what I have with joy.
To remember that I still might have something to give to others which could be of support for them and to start working again on my book.
Dear all, dear Alicia, please allow me to change my prayer. I just read Br. David´s letter to all of us in the Blog and feel I would like to change expressing what my prayers are on the first prayer Tuesday of this year. My last thoughts before falling asleep again yesterday were about you all sharing here and I was gratefully thinking of Ursula who fathered this special opportunity. May I, and with me many others, stop hanging on to limiting old patterns of habits and thoughts which are hin...
Dear all, dear Alicia, please allow me to change my prayer. I just read Br. David´s letter to all of us in the Blog and feel I would like to change expressing what my prayers are on the first prayer Tuesday of this year. My last thoughts before falling asleep again yesterday were about you all sharing here and I was gratefully thinking of Ursula who fathered this special opportunity. May I, and with me many others, stop hanging on to limiting old patterns of habits and thoughts which are hindering to think or do what is required to make this world a better place. That we may become free to really enthusiastically go for the well being (physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually) of all people and all living beings here on earth. May I, and with me as much people as possible, do what they can to let go of any unnecessary fixed thoughts, one of the basics of clinging to past imprints or/and pain which hinders unfolding creative and supportive thoughts which then may lead to supportive and creative actions. May all living beings be happy, may they become aware of the love which we all share. May we all become free of these limiting beliefs and emotions to be able to be present in the moment being in love and gratefulness, sharing One heart`s voice all together.
Today I am also thinking especially of Sylvie, Michele, Aine, THenry and LJ Boettger. Wherever you are, please know you are in my prayers.
Thank you dearly, Brother David, for your heartfelt inspiration and sharing of your deep concern with all of us in your letter 🙏
Several of the aspects already mentioned; to not try to control things, which are not for me to control; to not eat in a prolonged “Holiday” mode, meaning change to vegan on a daily basis, to not fill myself with doubt and fear, to not narrow myself down nor the perspective on things, not to forget my humor despite this open list… 🙂
I don´t know if they are waiting for me to be kind, but it seems to be a good idea to me to be kind towards the ones I feel some kind of resentment, which is usually due to stuff related to some unpleasant encounters or interactions of the past. To let go of, and to understand what was my part or may be my fixed idea in it and then to forgive myself as well as the other would release possible kept negative feelings. Thank you for this question.
Thank you for this very beautiful picture, dear Cathy.
Thank you for sharing, dear Trevor. With gratitude, may you be blessed. Ose
Sure this happens to me also. When I realize it, a way for me can be to take time to center anew, become silent inside and allow the many heartwarming situations connected with a possible theme or person to arise, and feeling grateful appears again like the sun to brighten the day, so to say. Blessings to you, dear Cailinrua.
Dear Anna, I don´t know if this is of help for you, but please let me share my thoughts with you. It probably relates with many of us to find it difficult where and what to really change. We are so used to go on with consuming and still are so easily manipulated to have any kinds of desires which keep economics of all sorts running. For me too, it is difficult to give up eating meat, and for me this currently is one of the most important things to let go of. I was told yesterday that there i...
Dear Anna, I don´t know if this is of help for you, but please let me share my thoughts with you. It probably relates with many of us to find it difficult where and what to really change. We are so used to go on with consuming and still are so easily manipulated to have any kinds of desires which keep economics of all sorts running. For me too, it is difficult to give up eating meat, and for me this currently is one of the most important things to let go of. I was told yesterday that there is newly created vegan food available in the shops that have a very similar taste. It seems to be a matter of combination of spices. But may be it is just much more important to look behind and see the difficulty in letting go of a desire per se, if it is the meat or fashion or whatever “I” feel I would need. The point for me is to catch the moment the desire calls out, to say “no” and to recall what is more important to me like my love for all creation, including animals or the understanding that 97 (?) % of the world´s animals are raised only for our ravenous desire for meat of all sorts, using up incredible amounts of food and water. When I remember how I managed to stop smoking, after understanding all the facts, it finally came down to simply collect the will and just to stop, which supported integrity and being congruent with my intention.
Just overwhelming beautiful!
Thank you. May full healing of your hands be with you. With greetings from my heart to you, may you be blessed, dear Alicia.
Hi Mary Pat, so nice to see you here again after all these years! Take care, dear. Several others of the old group are still sharing, like Antoinette, Anna, grateful sea, Kevin (with another icon than at that time) mostly in the daily questions-area. When I saw your post, I immediately was reminded in the quilt you once have been given by a friend of yours as a symbol of her friendship and love. Like Pilgrim, I hope all is well with you.
So good to see your post! May hope and strength lighten your spirits. May you heal, dear Alicia. You are in my prayers.
What a colorful sunset! Amazing photo, dear Ana. Thank you!
May the light brighten the shades of sadness in you and in all of us who suffer so that joy may break through like God´s rays find way through the clouds. Blessings to you, dear grateful sea.
Dear Pilgrim, may your hands fully heal, and may your belief in the good things to be there for you be a bright star shining for you this year which just begun. We walk together in this also, dear friend. Blessings to you.
Wonderful to see you are relaxing and feeling happy, dear Anna, Have a peaceful weekend, dear friend.
Thanks to my friend who sent the photo to me, and thanks to you, dear Mary! ❤️
