“The easiest way to get touch with this universal power is through silent Prayer. Shut your eyes, shut your mouth, and open your heart. This is the golden rule of prayer. Prayer should be soundless words coming forth from the centre of your heart filled with love.”
~ Amit Ray, Om Chanting and Meditation
I’m late blogging today.
The Aunt of one of my close friends is in hospital. She had surgery last night, and is in ICU in a critical condition this morning.
When I heard the news last night, I retired early. I prayed my mala for all of you, and then I sat in meditation and prayer for my friend’s aunt for three hours.
Again, this morning, I repeated the process.
Last night I could barely feel this woman’s life force. By the end of my meditation I could feel her energy, but weak, like a flickering candle flame. Her surgeons and medical team did an incredible job. I do believe they saved her life.
This morning her energy is still weak, but underlying that weakness is determination.
Life force is an astonishing thing. It dwells so strongly in us all.
And underpinning that life force, always, is love.
A love so vast, so beautiful and inclusive, that it renders me speechless with awe.
Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers today.
Be gentle with yourself and others. Choose kindness.
