Filling our Hearts with Love

Good Evening, God

I’ve joked for years about there being Slow Learners and Non Learners. That’s it. No Fast Learners! At least, not for anything truly important. This is a comfort to me as come to a deeper understanding of something I thought I knew.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against Principalities, against Powers, against the Rulers of the Darkness of this world. . .” Ephesians 6:12

How easy it is, God, to get distracted by the pawns and players and miss that point. Well, easy for me.

And, I would be foolish to think that I haven’t been co-opted from time to time to serve as a pawn. We are complex beings. And these are super complex times. That’s why when I came across this image that Pulelehua sent me — I just had to share it.

I love Centering Prayer and on Monday evenings in the Thomas Keating Chapel at 7:30 p.m. HST (GMT-10) Pulelehua leads us in the Welcoming Prayer. In the Welcoming Prayer we don’t just “consent” to the presence and action of God’s indwelling Spirit within us. We welcome it! This prayer brings my body and Spirit into closer alignment. That is so important as our “educated” world so often devalues the deep value of our bodies — preferring “thinking” almost to the exclusion of feeling and knowing.

Thank You God, for loving us and longing to be invited in to help us in a thousand unseen ways.
