‘ Draw me into the flames of Your love. Unite me so closely with You that You live and act in me….It is all about love melting in Love.’
St Therese of Lisieux.
‘Just as those who look at the sun cannot but fill their eyes with light, so they who always have a steady gaze into their heart cannot fail to be illuminated…for the heart is our knowing centre, the place of Divine encounter…God speaks in the great silence of the heart.’
A re-fertilised Lords Prayer
Blessed Mother-Father of the Cosmos,
whose delight flows through us in wave and particle,
whose presence is with us always
and whose Spirit dwells within.
Hallowed be your Name of names.
May your kingdom come,
and may your pleasure manifest in us in light and form,
to shine in our lives and on this earth,
just as it does in everything and no-thing.
Thank you for giving us this day.
Thank you for freely pouring out all that we need for sustenance,
nourishment and growth.
As we turn away from your enduring love,
forgive us for these times of un-ripeness.
Oh Birther of all that is and that is not,
forgive us when we trespass against you and those you put in our lives,
and help us forgive those who trespass against us.
Keep us from yielding to temptation,
and guide us away from anything or anyone who distracts us from your highest will.
Divine Light of light,
Deliver and protect us from all that is unripe and guide our spirit
that we may sparkle like jewels in a thousand petalled lotus flower.
Water plentifully our individual and communal roots
so that your living desire may blossom within us.
For all glory, power and abundant ripeness are yours almighty God
Just as it was before the beginning-ness,
it is now and always shall be radiant in Oneness and Love without end. Amen

Open the pores of my heart Lord
Open to pause in our hearts
Breathing your love in me
Breathing out Unity.
