Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Today, following a day’s work, I will travel again to the family farm. I have some saved vacation days, and I am cashing them in on time with my family. I am looking forward to being. Only being. Everything being. Being at home, at my childhood home in the comfort of everything I know and recall of my being raised, is an everything experience. I can let my muscles relax. And my mind. And my emotions. And my Spirit. It is my favorite, favorite, favorite place to be. Thank You for this. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger are the reasons that a gulls’s life is so short, and with these gone from his thought, he lived a long fine life indeed.”
An experience of a lightened load in the loving outlook of time to be at my childhood home is free. I am free from boredom, fear, and anger. It is the greatest gift I can give myself this winter season. I am being kind to myself. I am bringing myself a lullaby. I am balancing my vibrations. It feels so good. I like to remember this.
