Chalice Lighting for Enchantment

 

We light our chalice…

To remember those enchanted parts of our lives,

those memories more precious than silver and gold.

May this flame reignite our enchantments;

our wonders, our dreams, and longings,

restoring a paradise, we built it in our heart so many years ago…

Stolen by maturity… let the little child come home to thee

and so it goes...

And the tears that flow will be wiped away,

the heartache felt... is where sorrow replaced joy,

and so it goes...

That joy will emerge out of the depths of our sorrow,

and those who have stirred into the depths of life and death...

know how it goes...

That the tears from your eye will be wiped away,

if you lift yourself into the heart of life, to love life and you will know happiness,

that is how it goes...

We stagger, we fall, we burden each other sadness,

It is I who heals my broken heart, and in the depths of me

is the kingdom of God...

The comfort we seek is in the comfort we give,

When we reach out to hold a hand, they hold mine also...

and that is the way it goes...

Amen 

O' God hear my prayer...

 

O' God hear my prayer...

An avalanche of words cannot express how I feel...

Heartache and sadness have besieged communities...

We feel helpless and isolated as this virus takes hold and takes away our dreams...

O' God we are at your mercy...

Lift our eyes to the wonder of your majesty...

Bring us out of this mire!

May the instruments of your divine work bring us hope,

May they bring prosperity and peace to communities that

have been robbed of their loved ones;

abandoned to the wolves knocking on their doors!

May the instruments of your divine work bring justice,

unearth those who have prospered on our tragedies,

judge those who cut corners for political prosperity.

O' God hear my prayer...

I Believe... I Believe

 

Let us rise to a new dawn,

Where fear is blasted into the light!

Let us stand together courageous and brave,

Knowing and believing that Truth will walk with us!

Let her reveal to us from moment to moment,

that our dreams and visions can come true.

Mark our ground, draw the line… here I stand!

Feel the warmth of the new horizon,

It beckons you to a promised land.

A promise you made in the twilight hours…

During the dark night of the soul,

you touched upon your dream.

Do not give in to the nay Sayers, the doom Sayers,

and the parasites of your joy!

Rise up to a new day… and believe!

daily prayer


Let us begin...

 

Fully acknowledge yourself.

 

That this day will be different... completely different.

 

Acknowledge the totality of one existence...

 

Place no excuses for those things that can be done now... leave tomorrow for tomorrow... do not place tomorrow as a default. Today.

 

When you have completed what has been done now... you will begin to understand yourself...

 

Today is important. Tomorrow is not!

 

Let us begin our change by understanding, comprehending, and accepting what you have done today...

 

may this be your prayer....

 

 your daily prayer

 

                                       amen

 

 


New Beginnings

I stretch towards whatever that is...

The aim of doing something new...

New in my eyes 

Old in others... 

The wheel has already been invented... 

But you have to do what you have to do.

You will cross paths... perhaps even swords!

We sometimes rest in the same hotel, 

unexpectedly bump into each other at the airport,

Share the same carriage on the train...

perhaps we hail the same taxi or even share for a moment.

The criss-cross of our journey does not have to be a lonely one... 

When we collide... why is it we have to continue on our own?!

perhaps the collisions we meet is the gathering of something bigger than I

and though I stretch towards whatever that is.... 

perhaps that it is the other we are to connect with... changing the world we will make together...
