The ego speaks first and the ego speaks loudest. It will always make the case for separation: someone did this or that and therefore does not deserve my love. In any moment I listen to the ego - denying love to another - then to that extent I will be denied. I pray for a power greater than my own to push back the storm of my neurotic thinking. What I place on the altar to God is then altered within my mind. My relationships are part of a divine curriculum designed for me by God. I invite His spirit to enter my mind, that my thoughts might be guided to innocence and love and not stray to defense or attack. In that way, my relationships will be blessed and their potential for love fulfilled.
Dear God, May my relationships be lifted To divine right order And take the form That best serves Your purposes. May all unfold, Within me and the relationship, According to Your will. Amen.
