What Keeps You Connected
July 5, 2017

In the end, all religions and spiritual practices
only have one goal in mind:
keeping you connected to the Source of All.
Prayer is talking to Source.
Meditation is listening to
and feeling the Presence of Source.
Saying Grace before meals
is just reminding you
where your food really comes from.
You can look at a cross,
contemplate a mandala,
read spiritual writings,
 hike a fabulous mountain trail –
even changing a diaper or a flat tire,
if done with conscious intention,
can be an uplifting experience.
Everything you’re calling a problem,
and every form of suffering known to humankind
is, at one level,
another perfect opportunity to connect
with the Creative Power Back of the Universe.
All rivers empty into the Sea.

and a number of others since then,
which showed a decrease in local crime when large numbers prayed for peace,
we will meditate or pray for peace daily.
