Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho.
Today I pray, “Dear God, What wondrous edges of delight may we bring into the upcoming year? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:
“In fact, the life is generous with who lives his Personal Legend.”
Lately, well, within the past six months, I have wondered if I am living my personal legend. And I think I just may be. It arrived, this calling of calling forth spirits. I’ve never been a very good story teller. I didn’t read fiction books in my developmental years. I have always been drawn to non-fiction.
When my legend, my calling, arrived, I chose to believe it in good faith. I’m the one who asked God for a unique calling. I didn’t have a clue what God was getting at when the request showed up. It was a very clear message. And now, nearly six years later, I see so many reasons why God sought this opportunity in me. I had the faith to say yes. I had the willingness to continually pray about it and to expand my prayer life into other current, material forms. I see children as advanced beings. I believe in the ideology. I believe God would choose this mission at this time in history.
But all of this took me five years to realize. Five years of living my calling before I saw it as fitting to the times. And the verity punctuated itself in a legendary fashion. I became judgement-free to the whole idea. I didn’t judge God for asking, and I didn’t judge myself for accepting. I am open and honoring and fascinated. And life is very generous to me, indeed.
