Our Surrender to Love is the Ultimate Prayer
We offer ourselves and our love to God in the surrender and faith of our hearts.
The first light of awakening
is a virgin light
streaming from the morning sun.
peering over the horizon
so innocent and tender and new.
The first sip of water
from a virgin spring
is the purest water bubbling from
the source of innocence.
The first time you use
your unsteady legs
to run through a meadow,
is the first true feeling of freedom,
to run where there is no road,
to run for the joy of running
with beauty all around you.
The first time you kneel before
a patch of ground
with seeds in your hand
is the moment you feel a connection
with the creator
surrendering to the waiting earth
to create a garden.
The first time you feel the rising tides
of your own soul reaching for the sky,
you begin to allow your truth
to create pathways of light
to the source of all light.
Gather around the glow of your own heart,
for it is the light that will not burn.
It is the only light that can not be stolen.
Fill your cup with the light of your own joy,
and drink deeply of its purity.
You will arouse heaven with the
light from your soul.
I lift the light from my heart,
pour its innocence
into your waiting hands
and offer you the first light
of my own becoming.
