Sunlight, Seas, Trees and Me

The view driving around Diamond Head

Good Day, God!

I’m back in my regular routine and thankful! It is a beautiful world and especially in January and February when the sun  here in Hawaii is tilted to the South. The Light seems even more glorious.

This particular view delights me every time I drive around Diamond Head. The problem is, I drive by. But today they were hanging big metal nets on the side of Diamond Head to stop — or at least slow — falling rocks. So the traffic was stopped. Voila! Photo time!

Yes, that does remind me, God, of the benefits of pausing. And that reminds me that I haven’t done my Centering Prayer Time for today. It is so easy, God, to forget about Silent Prayer. I guess Extroverts like me love TALKING prayers — Prayers with WORDS — so we know what’s going on.

But, I am beginning to accept that my Conscious Mind does not get to be privy to everything. You and my Hidden Parts have things to do — lessons to learn — comfort to receive. Of course, since I don’t get to be part of it, I don’t exactly know. But that’s my guess about what’s going on.

You know, God, if You would SHARE just a little bit of what goes on when I’m doing Centering Prayer, it would make it so much easier to remember to do it. Sigh. I’m pretty sure You just responded that AFTER I’ve done regular Centering Prayer for a while, THEN I might “catch” an image or word. Dang!

That thought might not have been from You, God. But it sure does feel right. This is an opportunity for my Conscious Mind to step aside — and try not to be in a snit about it. Oh? She can be in a snit if she likes — as long as she goes and does it!
