Purpose Statement:
The following is a prayer for continued support from Life for practicing accountability, integrity and impeccability of my word and actions.

Only One Thing, One Life, One Power, One God. Itself operating within Itself in Harmony, in Unity, in Order. These Principles are universally and abundantly apparent as Life moves throughout Itself with an undefinable power, in observable peace, promoting calm and ease in all that It does. Always in action, always in balance, always creating more of Itself from Itself.  The thing Itself is beyond time and space, and that which created these concepts. God unfolds in perfect harmony and integrity, and Grace is that binds this seamless experience unto Itself.
As God is all there is, I am of God. The Life principal that is God ever creating must be in me, for I am here. The fundamental principles of Life ever creating Divine Nothingness into Divine Form operate through me, and they are in me. My life is born out of Unity, Order, Grace, and the Love of Spirit’s Self. The Creative Life Principle operates through me without obstruction.
In every moment, in every experience, I am supported, guided, and live from the inherent Life principles operating beyond time and space. In every interaction with myself or others, in every thought or deed, I am cradled by a God who only knows love for Itself. My actions are born out of Harmony and Unity. These principles govern my life and show up in my relationships as integrity, honesty, kindness, and impeccability of my word. My thoughts and actions support these principles in all my deeds.
With a grateful heart for words of prayer realized, I put gratitude into practice by living life from a place of principle. I go forth and simply be, nothing more and nothing less.  I carry peace, happiness, and laughter into the world, and for this I am grateful
Having impressed these thoughts into Consciousness, knowing my prayer is already done, I release and I let go and let God run my life.

Prayer of Gratitude

I sit still and I remain quiet. I wait for something to arrive.  I wait until that moment when I land and forget everything in my mind. I wait until I feel what is happening around me.

There is but one God, One Power, One Spirit, or Universal Intelligence. God is but a name for the indescribable. It is the source of Life and Its resting place. Each universe and everything within is of God, and there is more God than can be known. Its Light shines forth equally in all directions extinguishing the facade of darkness. Its light is cast upon every moment revealing what is really happening. The Universal Soul, always available, always perfect in the singular manifestation by which It is known. God, a word for Love, for kindness, compassion, for eternal peace.

As God is infinite, I must be of God, from God--a piece of this larger life in the singular.  Within me is peace, harmony, and love—all this fills my spirit. My thoughts, influenced by these qualities create my life.  It cannot be otherwise. As this is true for me, I know it is true for you. Each of us are in a special relationship with the Divine. Every subjective or objective thing, known or unknown emanates from the One. As Life pours forth in Spirit, it flows through us. Our Unified Spirit is a vital force in this creative process. This creative process is not bound by precedent because God is infinite and Life expands safely and harmoniously. In quiet mediation the One Voice speaks through our soul and we live in peace by Its wise counsel.

In this quietness, what appears to be ordinary is revealed to be truly extraordinary. We are one with this moment and grateful to know we are part of this stunning miracle of Life. There is nothing to control, manage, or worry about. Life unfolds perfectly and we as ride this wave of gratitude knowing our part is to be present, nothing more. We rest in the loving arms of the Divine, the Lover of our Soul, and surrender to that still small voice within. Any weight carried on our shoulders falls into nothingness for it is not real, it is only a thought, a dream.  For this awareness we are blessed. For our individual life, for our collective Life, we are grateful beyond words. We practice gratitude by sharing our presence with those who are in our presence.

This practice of gratitude is self-perpetuating and sends currents of Good into the Universe. As this prayer is reflected upon time after time by the us, it belongs to the Collective Self.

And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer to Live Now

I choose to release and forgive the past and live NOW

One Life in and through each and every moment.  One Infinite Presence enveloping all, including everything and everyone – excluding nothing and no one.  A Presence that is Love, Wisdom, Connection, Joy – the very Source of all. This One Life is eternal and is always present in all circumstances and life adventures. It is the flow of Good that creates and blesses all creation.  It is God.

And I share in that Life.  One Life includes me.  As the realization of God’s Life flows through me, and as I open to It, the love, wisdom, joy and reality of connection with all things become evident to me.  It is what I am.

I am open to the guidance that Love inspires in me.  I open to wisdom to guide me through this release and forgiveness.  I open to the realization of the essential connection that I have with all that has ever occurred in my life and all that has not. Each and every experience of life has shown up at exactly the right time to be the unfolding of my spiritual evolution.  I am grateful for being exactly where I am right NOW. 

I am deeply appreciative of all who share this Now with me.  I am grateful for any and every event, conversation or circumstance that has brought me to a deeper understanding of God as my life. This love, wisdom and connection is God acting through me.  I cherish the understanding that I have the power to choose the fullness of being and with that comes Joy.  Willing to release any ideas of past hurts or judgment, I claim my freedom from any thoughts or memories that may obstruct my view and experience of my Good right NOW.  I choose to be right here, right now in the very heart of my heart’s desire. 

The breath I breathe right now feels like a blessing of gratitude.  So I give great thanks for that which brings me back to realizing my connection with All That Is.

Going forward now, I release this Word, letting the Infinite Presence as the Law manifest that which is spoken in faith and intention.

Grace and Kindness

Affirmative Prayer for Grace and Kindness

In this moment there is One. One Infinite reservoir of Grace and Kindness, washing over all of Its Creation, present in every aspect of what is.  Beauty and Joy naturally reside right now as the breath and heartbeat of All.  It is the exquisite song of Life, resonating throughout all seen and unseen, Mana from Heaven raining down powerfully, abundantly filling every vessel to overflowing.

I am made of this Infinite Source, an instrument for Its expression, a place to celebrate being-ness. This one Spirit, Heart, Mother-Father-God is all that I am; I am a unique part of the One.  It moves through me, as me. It guides, informs, and infuses me with Beauty and Goodness; It comes through me and surrounds me, showing up in known and unknown ways. I am individual and yet perfectly melded into this one irrepressible, indestructible web of Life. I am inseparable from Its Wholeness, Perfection and Infinite Possibility, wrapped in the Beloved's Embrace, joyfully inescapable!

Right here and now I accept the Divine Invitation to more fully know the presence of God in and around me.  I open to this borderless place of being, at Home in the One.  I allow the power of Love to lift me up and melt away discomfort and fear in the appearance of conflict, confusion and loss. With a more welcoming heart I am present with however life is showing up, I breathe into the moment, knowing more deeply that there is a gem of awakening in whatever is put before me, and especially when "I don't like it." I remember I am always held up by God's 24/7 support system.  And those times that I forget and fall short, I am more kind and forgiving with myself. Even apparent "failure" is an opportunity to move forward.  I realize that there is no part of my life where I cannot practice spiritual growth.  I laugh more easily, with joy and kindness at my foibles and at Life. I reach out to my spiritual community, I daily turn to nature and music to recharge, replenish and realign myself with beauty, glory and gratitude, which enables me to access Unconditional Joy. As the vessel of my being grows, I am so blessed!

I lean into knowing this Truth with all of my being, trusting that I am infinitely supported, at home in God.

With a grateful heart I simply let this prayer be, for it is already known in the heart and mind of God.

And so it is.
