Wisdom

Wisdom 

There is one Power, one Holy Presence; a field of Infinite Love and Intelligence, in and through all things; everywhere present, seen and unseen, expressing as form and vast spaciousness. It is one unifying wholeness that is the source and potency of life Itself; a magnificent harmony of love, light, intelligence, beauty, joy, creativity, and vitality. It is God, Spirit, Life, the Tao, Universal Intelligence, Unconditional Love.  It is that which is beyond one name. 

This Power, this Holy Presence is in and through me, expressing as me. I am one with this infinite presence of unconditional love and intelligence. It is my source and I am its eyes, ears, hands and feet. It is the love in my heart and the wisdom of my soul. It is all that I am. I know this is true of everyone and everything. We are all unique expressions of life, connected through this field of loving intelligence.

In this awareness, I accept for myself and for all of humanity a greater respect and value for spiritual guidance received from this vast field of loving intelligence. I claim a deep knowing that this guidance is sourced in infinite possibility and vision for the highest good and thriving harmony for all creation. I accept a widespread release of limitations based upon past experience, current conditions, fear or lack.  I claim an expanding willingness in every individual to explore and experience their precious, inherent gift to perceive the wisdom of Spirit. I celebrate a global shift where spiritual guidance expressed as intuition, insight, and answered prayer, is honored, valued, and encouraged in all areas of life. I know the world is blessed as more hearts and minds choose to receive and act upon insights and guidance from this Living Intelligence, this most Holy Presence, I call God. 

My heart overflows with gratitude for the way this awareness of infinite love, the wisdom of God, and divine guidance is recognized in us, accepted for what it is, and acted upon.

I joyfully release this prayer to that aspect of God that receives the Word and responds to it. Blessed be. 

And so it is.

Spiritual Guidance


There is a natural pattern of divine perfection guiding and informing all of Life. It is the wisdom and intelligence of the Living Spirit forever giving Its light to all of creation.

We each are a recipient of the spiritual intelligence that expresses in the perfection of life, of the profound wisdom of the ages. The intelligence and wisdom of the Loving Spirit is our deepest intuition and our guiding light. This guidance comes easily and naturally to all beings everywhere. True intuition is the voice of Spirit within.

I accept that we, as a spiritual community, and I as a spiritual being, step into a greater alignment with this flow of spiritual guidance. I am naturally attracted to all choices that bring me to living in the flow of goodness. I take time to slow down and tune into the wisdom that is available to me from within me and from all around me. I am open and receptive to that which has heart and soul meaning for me and for others around me. I listen well. I respond wholeheartedly. I am guided to perfect right action by the spiritual guidance available to me.

I give thanks for this greater realization of the perfect pattern of Life that guides me to contribute as I value spiritual guidance in all of its forms.

I release this Word into the creative medium that responds fully and completely.


And so it is.

Stillness and Peace

To know in the stillness of the presence of the One.  I am filled with peace and calm

God is all there is. Wondrous and whole, God-Spirit is everywhere. God-Spirit created and sustains all the wonders of the world. All around, ever-present, God breathes life into being for the beauty and good of all. God is the creator and sustainer of still waters, deep green forests and the quiet sweetness of dawn. There is simply no place that God is not. God is the source of all there is.


I am one with God - fully united with the depth and power and beauty of life. I am loving and filled with trust in God and life. As nature puts on her summer dress, I too don my summer gown of natural beauty trusting in the way that life will unfurl. As I sit with Spirit I know I do not need to have all the answers right at this moment. I can trust in the mystery and allow myself to be guided by that part of the Divine residing inside me at all times. I can rest assured that the right thing will happen at the right time.


Life is beautiful. I claim for myself the ‘remembering’ that I find peace in the heart of God. I accept and know that this peace is always present offering the knowledge, wholeness and beauty of life through prayer and affirmation of the one life. I live in the present moment with God by my side, trusting in my well-being and the well-being of my family and friends through this time of transition. I love unconditionally and trust that all will be fine as I travel my own path making my own decisions. I accept that I let go of any attempted control of family members knowing they will find their own way in their own time. I delight in the time we spend together and they all experience a timeless and eternal love.

Joy and acceptance sings in my heart as I give thanks for this shift and knowing. I celebrate this gift.

I surrender my word into the Law that always says YES and know that everything is as it should be. I release it and let go. And so it is.

Amen

Kinship with all Life

We see a world where kinship with all life prospers 


There is One Life, infinitely present everywhere, in and through all existence. It is the Source in which all Creation has its being. It is the mystery that binds and unifies everything. It is stars and planets, brother sun and sister moon, rocks and trees, and all creatures great and small. It is the Power that connects and holds all as one harmonious wholeness. It is love, peace, and ultimate good.
I am part of this oneness of Life. It is my source and my sustenance. In It I live and move and have my being. Its power is the natural essence of all creation. We are all expressions of the One and every part is essential. Every part is beloved and belongs.  We are all part of this kinship.
In the still depths of my heart I realize that this wholeness of Spirit permeates the entire world. I accept that there is a perfect harmony and a dynamic power that supports and guides the eternal unfolding of life in all its magnificent diversity. This interconnected web of life is present everywhere, and love binds and prospers all as one. I claim the realization of the vision of a world that works for everyone where kinship with all life prospers and thrives together. I accept divine guidance for an ever greater knowing and revealing of the great unity of which we are all a part. Spirit is moving through life right now as balance, cooperation, beauty, grace, and reverence for one another and all of God's creation.
Gratitude and joy rise up in me as I hold this greater vision for all life everywhere.
I release this word of prayer into the Divine creative medium, in faith and trust that it is already done in the mind of God.

And so it is.

Forgiveness


There is a Power and Presence in the Universe that is a Force for Good. It is the Unconditional Essence of Pure Awareness, Pure Consciousness, the Ground of Being. Everywhere present, It is the Source and Substance from which all Life arises. It is in and through all things as Its Self. It is all-loving and ever-forgiving, creating all of Life and accepting all of Life back into Itself unconditionally. All that It creates is Good.
It is everywhere and I know that It is in me. It has formulated all the atoms and cells in my body and holds them together in Divine Right Order. All that I am is One with this Ground of Being. Not only is It in all of me but it is in all of the world.
Knowing this, I speak my word for and about this world. I accept deep understanding and forgiveness in the hearts of all people. This understanding allows forgiveness to flow naturally as an accepted norm for all people and in all cultures. I claim the letting go of all resentment, guilt, blame and victimhood. I claim that the hearts and minds of the world's people are washed in the healing balm of forgiveness—self-forgiveness and forgiveness of others. I claim this freedom for humankind now. I claim the establishment of forgiveness as a power that is so well integrated in the hearts of all the people, that it is the norm. I accept this freedom and this Grace now manifest on earth in the people.
In gratitude for this, I surrender this prayer, and the power and intention of it, to the Divine Law for this good and so much more.
And so it is.

Unity and Connection


There is only One Source of all there is: One life, God’s life. God is the Divine, Infinite, indwelling Power and Presence. It is the allness of every thought, deed, action, event, and circumstance. It is the unconditionally loving essence of the universe expressing Itself in and through all of creation—in everything, every one, and every place.
This One is all of my being. I am inseparably one with It. My very existence is an expression of It. Every part of me is the fullness of the nature of God. Life Itself is breathing me into existence in every moment. With every breath I take, I am breathing in the Allness. As this is true for me, this is true for each of us. We are each unified with the One Source and each other as It lives, moves, and has Its being in and through us. We each walk in the Reality that there has always been and forever will be only one thing happening—Love itself.
As we plant this idea of unity and oneness in Mind, it takes form as love, peace, and joy in our feeling of connection to all that is. The recognition that God is expressing as each unique individual transcends all appearances of difference or separation. It is within this expanse of thought that I know for us a deeper awareness of our unity and connection to the human family, to the planet that sustains us, and to all of life. The rivers are my life blood. The earth is my sustenance. My love of the whole human community is stronger than the strongest heartbeat. I know for us a moment of grace through which our most profound and personal prayer for peace and well-being on the planet finds its way into a very real demonstration of peace, unity, and plenty. We are forever and ever expanding in our sense of unity with Love itself. We are never alone. We are empowered beyond all imagination by our connection with and experience of the Divine within ourselves, each other, and everything.
For all of this, I am grateful. I celebrate the radiant expression of God as connection to all that is.
It is with certainty and joyful anticipation that I now release this prayer into the loving activity of Divine Law which is already responding affirmatively. I accept it as done.
And so it is.

We see a world where kinship with all life prospers

We see a world where kinship with all life prospers


There is only One Life, that Life is God's Life, and that Life is perfect. It is all-encompassing, eternal, and expansive, filling all time and space with Its endless variety. It is the thread that connects and runs through all that is, and It is all that is. It is the unconditional love and the organizing power that informs and binds all together in harmonious perfection. It is the source and the substance, creator and created, and the fertile soil in which all that is, grows and prospers.
This One Life is my life now. This is the truth of my being, and the truth of each person reading this prayer. Each is an integral part of the whole -- the one heart, one life -- for all eternity. Each exists as a perfect expression of this one perfect Life, connected to all in eternal unity. Each is known, understood, and accepted as part of the whole, part of the magnificence of this all-knowing, all-loving Life.
I accept, right now, the perfect experiences to affirm each person’s kinship with all that is, and with each other. I welcome the perfect situations, resources, and environments that nurture the awareness of each person's connection with all of life and the willingness to act on this awareness in ways that affirm the Oneness in which all life finds expression. I claim for all an easy release of any misconceptions, any confusion or doubt about the sanctity or value of Life, and an influx of the perfect experiences that affirm the connection of each to the whole. I welcome a resurgence of joy as this truth reveals each one's part in this miraculous and majestic life where all are intertwined, and all are held in perfect love.
I'm grateful for this truth, grateful for the infinite ways this Perfect Life finds expression and prospers in the Oneness, and grateful for the activity of Spirit that manifests uniquely through all.
With a thankful heart I release this prayer, my Word, into the Law, that Doer and Organizing Power that moves this prayer from thought and intention into form and experience. Knowing it is done in the perfect time and way, I let it be.
And so it is.
