Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “The Compassionate Mind” by Paul Gilbert.
Today I pray, “Dear God, When I think too much, which, my mother and sister will attest, I am apt to do, I forget who I am and who I came here to be. I abandon my Higher Self for my lower, thinking brain. Not to say that thinking is bad or wrong; only my heart can speak to the cause of my survival here and my inner desire to remain and continue to live out callings and spirit-filled functions of a heart-led life. I am grateful for my brain and thoughts. And I place it away from time to time — to remember the richness of thinking with my heart. Thank You for this. Amen. ”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“It’s still something of a shock to recognise just how ‘multiple’ we are.”
I love my thinking state. I do. I am not ceaselessly pushing boulders up hills in the thinking state. I simply like being in my brain every now and agin. Yet I know it is my heart to which I am to always return. My heart calls me, all ways. Love in anything frees me from fear and duality. Even when ego hangs around, I know it is there, as my thinking state is there. They are welcome to stay — this is, after all, 3-D human life on planet earth. I won’t resist ego, yet I will lessen it and temper it grandly. I won’t resist my thoughts, yet I will go gently and abundantly back to my heart.
