DAILY SPIRITUAL NUGGETS: 30 Days of Faith, Hope, Prayer, and Gratitude – Day 23 “Stay Awake”
Today’s Body Connection: As our practice grows and expands, the challenge is to stay awake. We begin to see the payoff of living a healthy life. We drop the pounds and inches and we love what we are seeing. We begin to connect with the outer results and forget that we are feeling better than ever before. After having a moderate amount of success, we tend to forget that it’s not about fitting into the next dress size down, or being able to squeeze ourselves into our skinny jeans. It’s about connecting with our inner strength and tapping into Spirit through prayer. The physical practice has only one purpose and that is to let us know our own divinity.”
Meditative Thought: One of the greatest advantages of prayer is the ability to stay awake to the presence of God that lives within us. The practice of prayer is not to gain any material possession; it is to know more God. Remember that the Universe only knows itself, which is love, joy, abundance, peace, prosperity, compassion, oneness; our prayers are to know more of these divine qualities that create our authentic self, our true being. Anything that is not of God is a low vibration of prayer. Not to say that these human delights are not a part of our everyday life, but just stay awake. These superficial things are not real, and have no true power. The only authentic experience is the presence of God.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, pray with the intention to stay awake and to experience more God.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I pray with the highest intention of love. My life is the life of God; therefore I am blessed. And so it is. Amen
