Prayer Nuggets #6

I have been following my daily prayer time with choosing one thing I had pondered while praying, and then writing it down in a journal. The idea is then to stick to this idea, bringing it forward at the helm of thought into every aspect of that day.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    I don’t have to struggle to understand God or be good because at this very moment I am one with God made in the image and likeness of Divine love and Infinite Mind

    Regarding the kingdom of heaven, I think this is one of the most misunderstood claims of Jesus. It is often misused to support an essentially personal spirituality. While Jesus no doubt favored such spirituality, his point is better understood as a claim that in him the Age to Come has dawned.
