WEEK 184

God, what is your guidance for me today?

Go with the flow of things today.

Don’t force anything.

Try not to anticipate.

Stay in the moment

and be fully present

to what is happening.

Be aware of your mood and


but speak and act

from a heart of love.

Be kind to all today

and let gentleness be

your manner in all things.

When you eat, let a prayer

of gratitude be on your lips.

Be a good friend to your

body. Let any stresses

be dissipated through

deep breathing and a 

letting go.

Let peace fill you and

carry you. 

And, may love be the power

that flows through you

as you flow

with the day,


Evening Reflection 

I tell you, spiritual growth is not easy. And just when you think you have a handle on something, life will test you. Today’s guidance was going to be easy, I thought. It seemed a little mundane, sort of a run-of-the-mill obvious guidance, and easy to do. 

But already there is that pride thing. Ugh!

Today I was cooking a birthday dinner and spent lots of time doing it. I also went back out to the grocery store when I learned we were having extra guests. I was going to make sure we had enough food. About halfway through the cooking I was informed that some had decided to opt out of my very good chicken curry, and instead made sandwiches. If I had known, I would not have had to go to the store, do extra prep work, et cetera. Was I a little perturbed? Yes. But I did catch myself and remembered the very first line of the guidance…  “Go with the flow of things today.”

It turns out we had so much food left that I was able to give a guest a good portion to take with them. They were new to curry dishes and loved my dinner. I was happy to pack it up. Also, one younger guest changed their mind and ate the chicken curry. They said they don’t usually like it but that mine was really good.

I am glad I kept my emotions and mouth in check after hearing who wasn’t going to have any. But it all worked out just fine. The guidance really did put me in check – and was very ahead of me, as if knowing what my test would be, and what I would need in terms of encouragement vis-a-vis today’s guidance. In the midst of my heightened emotion, I found a place to be alone, and pulled the guidance out of my pocket to read again. I laughed out loud as I realized how on target this guidance was for me.

Mundane? Easy? For me today… No. And I won’t question the ones that look easy again. 

Pride learned another lesson. 

And I am grateful.
