FORTUNE FORK

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Think Better: An Innovator’s Guide to Productive Thinking” by Tim Hurson.

Today I pray, “Dear God, The fork in the road takes me one way toward fortune in the bright and fabulous ways that I know I can create in an instant. And the other way, leading to the same fortunate place along steps of faith and hope as I watch it all play out. If both paths of divergence lead back to where I am going, shall it be in an instant? Or lengthened in faith and hope? Wondering today.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“The notion of emptying oneself is hardly new. It plays a central role in many religions. The Greeks have a word for it: kenosis, which literally means ‘self-emptying.'”

The nice thing about an invisible fork in an invisible road is that I can go both ways at the same time and receive the fortunate opportunities of choices in both directions.
