The Great Invocation Prayer Brings Peace and Joy

Saying The Great Invocation The Great Invocation is one of the oldest prayers ever given to humankind. It has been given to us in differing forms from time to time depending on the spiritual need of humanity. Like an arrow speeding to its goal, the Invocation is a gift to be received with gratitude. Then as you join other people and become a group, it is a gift to be sent for the healing of humanity and the earth. The Great Invocation crosses boundaries between lands and cultures and it moves easily between time zones when those who say it,...

Worlds of Contentment

Worlds of Contentment Not long ago an expectant grandmother was presented with a copy an ultra-sound image of her soon to be born granddaughter. The grandmother was delighted to see the fetus who was clearly sleeping on the folded placenta with her hands supporting her head. During gestation the ears gradually move back into position for life in the world. The tiny child’s ears were almost in position for active life outside. The thing that left the grandmother starry-eyed was the expression of peace and contentment on the child’s face. Even...

Prayer of Acknowledgement – T S Eliot – Little Gidding

Prayer of Acknowledgement – T S Eliot – Little Gidding

A Prayer of Acknowledgement T. S. Eliot wrote Little Gidding. The writing below comes from Part V, of his “Four Quartets”. It seemed to be a perfect thing to share with you, especially at this time of year. It somehow found its way to the top of my desk from Richard Rohr and the Center for Action and Contemplation, a Roman Catholic Organization located in the American Southwest. I don’t know that Eliot thought of it as a prayer, but it has that subtle and uplifting aura to me. I hope you like it! “(…) With the drawing of this Love...

What the Age of Aquarius Can Do For You

The dying embers of the Piscean Age wane as we move further into the Aquarian Age. This great progression from one astrological sign to another is an evolutionary movement that seems to be cosmically designed to move humanity through change and upheavals and periods of tremendous and enduring creativity and inspiration. The purpose of the constant shift is to enable humankind to expand its consciousness. In time we will find ourselves embodying a new race. Rest assured that it will not at first be a race with marked physical features as we...

What is religion

What Is Religion Do you remember your college days when a conversation had already started about religion and your friends and roommate were so engrossed they were sitting in the hall? Some were wearing their pajamas and slippers and their hair was pin-curled. Others were still dressed. Perhaps there were six or seven gripped in a conversation of real interest and you decided to join them on the cold, hard floor. They were interested in coming to an acceptable definition that would fit all the major religions of the world—Hindu, Buddhist,...

Helping Others : What Comes Around Goes Around

Service Is the Key Recently a friend called and asked, “What can a widow do to survive after the death of her husband, especially when she has a debilitating illness and little money?” Sadly, it is a question that millions of women all over the world are forced to ask themselves. Often with the passing of her spouse, a widow must either depend on the graciousness and kindness of her children or find some other way to survive until it is her time to go on. It is a hard, even a terrifying question that she must answer. There is no easy reply to...

From Power to Freedom – Stop Mass Incarceration – 13th Amendment

From Power to Freedom There is a US based organization, The American Leadership Forum—the ALF—whose mission it is to give power to truth. Recently its diverse membership watched a Netflix produced film entitled simply 13th. The documentary is about the incarceration of people of color, especially those who are African-Americans. The movie was important enough to have been nominated for an Academy Award recently. Some of the more influential members of the ALF attended a showing of the film 13th as a group. When queried about their feelings,...

Aquarian Age – What’s in A Word?

Perhaps futurists think differently from others! What do you think of when one of your friends mentions the Aquarian Age? While we may still have a toe in the Piscean Age, our times suggest that the energy of Aquarius is getting stronger by the day. Most North American, Japanese, European and Australian homes and many around the world now have a television set, a computer and a smart phone. If you’re looking for a computer programming job in California, it is likely that with your oral interview, you will also have to take a five hour written...

Feeling Awe Affects our Health and Happiness

Have You Ever Experienced Awe and Deep Wonder? It Could Be the Key to Your Health and Happiness! If you have ever stood on the shores of an island or a continent and watched the sun silently, and slowly sink beneath the horizon, you were likely quiet. Even silent. Another day was done but you were there to see the clouds turn from pink to golden and finally to grey and then black. It seems to happen ever so slowly and yet modern people are struck with awe, so filled with awe—reverence–are we that the scene, simple and ancient as it is,...

About Humility and Committing To Being Humble To Each Other

Commit To Being Humble To Each Other 2017 is here in all its glory and the world hopes it will be a year of respite from the traumas of 2016. One of my favorite books is Andrew Harvey’s, The Hope. It is about what he calls ‘sacred activism’, a world totally devoted to dedicated action for others. It seems likely that it will take a very long time for the world to get it, but the world is better off because some people are now committed to serving humanity and nature, thus making themselves better human beings by developing humility in...
