Brian’s Reflection: Tuesday, February 21, 2012
To pray is to take notice of the wonder,
to regain a sense of the mystery that animates all beings,
the divine margin in all attainments.
Prayer is our humble answer to the inconceivable surprise of living.
It is all we can offer in return for the mystery by which we live.
Rabbi Abraham Heschel
It does not have to do with talking some deity into changing Reality.
That is not the way “God” works ….. and we should know better, if we have any common sense.
Prayer is not about negotiating with God. It is about connecting with the Source of Life ….. who wants nothing but our transformation into Fullness.
Relationship is not about Control. It is about “the inconceivable surprise of living”.
Prayer is letting go of our Life into the “hands” (metaphorically speaking) of Love.
