Devotion

Devotion 

The last couple of days, I have felt this soft, full feeling inside. It
fills me up and surrounds me with peace. I was reading from two
books recently, where authors Marianne Williamson and Anne
Rice were talking about God. This feeling just washed over me as
I was reading, so totally connected and harmonious with what
they were saying. I had the same feeling last year, listening to
one of my favourite spiritual teachers, Adyashanti, speak about
devotion.

There was an instant inner recognition that this is what I want
most of all…

to live my life in a constant state of prayer, appreciation,
gratitude and prayerful devotion to the Divine. There is a
sweetness to it that brings tears to my eyes.

I prayed this morning for God’s grace to bring me back to
awareness, especially at those times when I forget and slip into
unconsciousness.

Showing Up For Life

SHOWING UP FOR LIFE by Nicola Karesh

What would it feel like
To show up for my life.

To embrace each precious moment
Like it was the first.

To savour life fully.
To enjoy every exquisite second.

To see richness all around.
Divine majestic grace.

I am ready to step forward.
To stand boldly in the light.

No more hiding out.
I claim my birthright.

I am ready dear God.
Please take my hand.

Wrap me in tenderness.
Enfold me in your pure light.
