Pocketful of Miracles, by Joan Borysenko, one of my favorite authors and teachers, is a book of prayers, meditations and affirmations to nurture the spirit. For each day of the year, she offers a couple of inspirational writings. Here is one short prayer/meditation, written for January 1.
“You have known us, Divine One, since before the foundation of the world. You are closer than hands and feet. Truly, as it is said, in You we live and move and have our being. Yet so often we feel alone, like strangers in a strange land. Although the mind may forget its Divine birth, the heart yearns ceaselessly to remember.”
May we all remember that, along with the goofiness we see within ourselves, there is also within us something beautiful and timeless - gently inviting us to remember who we are.
Happy New Year! May its unfolding bring us all a little closer to 20/20 vision.
