A Ritual for the Path of My Faith

rear view
Cup hands full of consciousness
Face where you have been (in the past)
I face the path of my faith
This is the way I’ve come,
The journey my soul has taken to bring me where I am today.
I recall the people I’ve met on this path,
Teachers all.
Kind and Unkind-
Whatever they did, they walked with me awhile
And showed me the path
I bless their being and their teaching.
I remember events and encounters along the way,
Pleasant or painful,
Always instructive,
Whatever happened, it was useful –
And in its own integrity, it was beautiful-
I learned to follow my own path.
I learned where I must go.
I bless the path of my past…
Turn back on the past.
Holding my present in my own hands,
I face my future now –
I face a new path every morning-
Every day I step forward on an unknown path –
A unique path –
Guided and supported by the Spirit within me –
In its presence, past and future are one time-
And I’m where I am supposed to be.
Now and always, my path is in Spirit.

“Mysticism is an immediate, direct, intuitive knowledge of God or of ultimate reality attained through personal experience. Wide variations are found in both the form and the intensity of mystical experience; however, it is not dependent on the form, but solely on the quality of life that follows the experience. The mystical life is characterized…

Therein Lies the Treasure.

Therein Lies the Treasure.

I had to learn I was dying a bit every day before I could find how to embody the truth with an open heart—the only way to feeling, to loving, and to giving beyond what I ever knew I could feel, love and give. This is the essence of what it means to be both…
