Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation” by Sharon Salzberg.

Today I pray, “Dear God, Happiness is like a turtle’s shell.  I may bring it with me, no matter where I am.  Thank You for this.  Amen.”

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

“We use mindfulness to observe the way we cling to pleasant experiences & push away unpleasant ones.”                                    —SHARON SALZBERG

Bring them along!  These pleasant experiences.  Hold them close and love them all the more.  Carry them around!  These happy ways of being.  They are the lightness of light and the levity of levitation.  Cling to the bliss!  As it floats, grip it and float along in laughter and adulation.  No matter where!
