Some rambling thoughts , articulated :)

it is an exquisite song i am allowed to explore
... to give thanks (verbalised) moves from thought through word as action.

Co-Creation , it seems , needs thought , word , action.

Thanx melds well with ... 'before we even ask , it is given us'
The energy movement melds also with ... 'as we give , we receive'
Thanx for our needs being met , when seemingly we are given all (that we need) also marries in,

Therefore ... Gratitude short curcuits ,imo , other drawn out methodologies of creation.

I was lookiing in my little folder of 'good things' today and came across the following
(that sustained me in darker times)

"Spirit is in a state of Grace forever.
Our reality , is only Spirit ,
therefore ,
We are in a state of Grace forever."

or as john said ,
"Well we all shine on .
like the moon , the stars and the sun
relax, connect, allow.
repeat process.

Hi BFWF, I can only imagine your trip being a colorful expedition with you in charge, ......an old Irish saying goes
"May the road rise up to meet you"

Thought is energy, sound or words we utter is energy and all matters are energy, so when you pray it is like wrapping yourself around with a worm quilted blanket to keep you safe and worm. The blanket is a symbol of a good energy to protect you from all kinds of bad energy floating all around us.You can just pray, it doesn't have to be to any one. Prayer is a very powerful energy to keep us safe from all kinds of natural and unnatural phenomenon that we encounter in our life on earth.

An old sage once told me that prayer is like building a strong fence around you. When you do bad things to others the fence will be broken from one side and you live yourself unprotected.

Greetings folks..

This is my first post on this site. Am not aware if there is any particular setup here, so I'll just drop off my thoughts.

I feel that sometimes we need to calm ourselves down and give ourselves strength & for this we need prayers. I should state that (personally) I don't believe in God as portrayed in different religions, but that God is part of the Human Mind or vice versa. I believe the human mind is the source of all miracles - from intelligent ideas to astonishing inventions. But it weakens at times & we need to empower it - by it!
So, prayers for me is telling myself I can do it, reminding me of positive things, reinforcing what my conscience tells me despite what my heart says and finally, just to relax and de-stress.

Hello eurie and welcome to ds.

I agree with you , but I'll add that to each comes the inspiration to connect with something deeper in their own way. I can't deny the joy and relief of the people I see pray whether its to this or that god or spirit or just to steady the mind and look within. Its all good . Personally I see everything is a living extension of one divine life being , I sense that no matter what or how you pray its going to benifit you .

With love
