Today's blog comes from Joan Borysenko's Pocketful of Miracles (Feb11/12):
We can only love others to the degree that we have opened our hearts to ourselves. It is not selfish to bless ourselves first, because if our heart remains closed we have nothing to give. The most selfless prayer is to awaken so that we can serve others and help alleviate the suffering that comes from ignorance of our unity with the Big Mind of God.

The lovingkindness blessing process:
Breathe and be still. Imagine the light and love of the Divine Beloved pouring over you and washing through you, revealing the purity of your own heart, extending beyond you and merging with the Divine Light. See yourself totally enclosed in the egg of light, and then repeat these lovingkindness blessings for yourself:
May I be at peace, May my heart remain open,
May I awaken to the light of my own true nature,
May I be healed, May I be a source of healing for all beings.

Repeat these blessings for yourself anytime during the day when you feel alone, afraid or out of touch with the Light within.
Love and joy,

Joan Borysenko: Everything in the Universe has its own song.
Think on this a moment... the chirp of the cricket, the howl of the wind, the roar of the lion, the purr of a kitten, a baby's giggle. Music is infinite, and we each have our own special sounds within us.
I LOVE the movie Happy Feet (I haven't seen the sequel yet), and the concept of each one of us having our own heartsong. I don't remember the person who said this, but I've often heard the quote, "Don't die with your music still inside you." What's your heartsong? What does your heart really want to say and do and be? What makes you sing or dance with pure joy?  How about humming as you explore these questions?
Doin' the happy dance,

Let It Be Amazing!

Sometimes in my affirmative prayers, I get a bit too into the details of how I want something to show up.  This is part of my control-freak nature, but I must say, this desire to control IS lessening over time!
We are created of the same Source that hangs the stars, spins the galaxies, and makes each single cell in our bodies do its amazing work without our conscious control.  Let's give It credit for knowing what It is doing!
Here's a quote from Rev. Cynthia James: "Invite Spirit to expand you and give you the highest and best for your life." I'll grant you, that does take considerable trust, but I certainly know that Spirit's "highest and best" is WAY more amazing than anything I could outline for it!
I've used the phrase "trust the flow" for many years, and life has become better and better as I let Spirit guide me.  Recently I've changed it to "trust the overflow" because, as I've become more trusting and allowing, Spirit has been more and more amazing through me.
So let's invite Spirit to be amazing and pour on the good, and we get to celebrate and circulate it!
