Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “The Success Principles” by Jack Canfield.
Today I pray, “Dear God, I love one of the stories that Jack Canfield retells in the film ‘The Secret’ (based on the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne). He conveyed that he was at a point in his life where he was ready to manifest financial abundance. And as he was ruminating over how this manifestation was going to take place, he realized that he had written a book that had not yet been published. That story makes me smile. Over here, in my world, I experienced his story with a resonance of ‘Of course the book is a possibility! It is already written! It is only a matter of getting it published!’ Yet while so many of us have our truths, our self-expressions with us already, we hem and haw over feeling stuck. This makes me smile again. Are there lessons needed to be learned in these periods between planting and harvesting? Is the planting and growth season actually a season of harvest on a soul level? When we are the author of our own lives, is it the process of authoring that is as valuable as watching the books fly off the
shelves at bookstores? And as the answer already seems to be an apparent ‘yes,’ why?”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.”
I am becoming more and more attuned to the truth of service. Service, with faith, marks the character of a spiritual being having a temporary human experience. Writing the book is service-with-faith as much as seeking to publish the book is service-with-faith. Each step taken to contribute through self-expression of self-love is a step of soul evolution, soul growth. Peace, being at peace, and surrendering and letting go are evolutions of the soul.
Be the author of your own life. And when you have written what you had set out to write, continue to serve through the sharing of your life, through your self-expression. Publish your life through service to others, always remembering to love yourself first. Be service. Be faith. Be love. Be compassion. Be grace. Be unity. And in sharing yourself, harvest the fruits of your being.
