Noble Intentions and Blessing Others

yellow hibiscu 3/17

Good Day, God!

This morning — during my Centering Prayer time — I remembered a talk given by Hob Osterlund — years ago — at Central Union Church. She encouraged us, when dealing with irritating Parts of Ourselves, to remember that they ALL had Noble Intentions!

That was/is a difficult concept to grasp! The Part of Me that wants to escape in to romantic fiction has a Noble Intention??? Well, yes. She wants me to focus on MY beloved husband. She wants me to focus and Love and Togetherness . . . not on getting stuff done. Does she go about it in a way I can understand and decode?

Dang!  Of course! IF I BEGIN BELIEVING IN THE EXISTENCE OF NOBLE INTENTIONS I CAN SEE THEM!

So, how about Solitaire? A desire to close off the Outer World which gets TOO MUCH of my attention.  Wow!  That is Right! And this morning I discovered a partial solution!

I created a TIME WALL. I, who have scoffed at Other Walls, found this one helpful. I looked at my day and decided that all my obligations to Others could wait until Noon! the 9-12 time would be MINE!  I loved and enjoyed those three hours!

Hmm. Yes, God. It is CLEAR. When I BLESS folks . . . I must attribute to them Noble Intentions. It may be permissible to argue about views of reality. But, God, I shall work at refraining from doubting the Noble Intentions of others!
