Prayer for Our Center
I know that God is Life, the source that animates me. And I am the source that animates my experience and all that exists around me.
I know that God is Love, the "Divine Givingness", the ever constant flow of grace. And I am a temple of this Divine Love, the "hole in the flute that the grace flows through."
I know that God is Wisdom, the light that dispels any and all darkness, replacing it with clarity and understanding, acceptance and empathy. And I am the beacon of this light as I allow and trust Divine Grace to shine through me, releasing all judgment which clouds my recognition and deep understanding of my oneness with the Divine and all life.
I know that God is all there is, the all encompassing "I am that am". All that has been created has its source in God; all that has been created is good - very good - perfect. Likewise, I am all that I am and all that I am is me, my strengths, my weaknesses, my joys, my sorrows, my triumphs and my vulnerabilities. All that I am is good - very good - perfect.
I know that God is the awesome synchronicity of life, the balance of nature, the fullness of a concerto, the vibration of a dance. And I am an awesome balance of emotions and thoughts, a creative unique being not duplicated by another spirit or human.
I know that God is omnipotent and as a part of God as a wave is part of the ocean, as an expression of the Divine Itself, I am powerful. It is through me that my world is created.
I know these things of God and me and know them as true for every person. More specifically, I know that each person in the Claremont Center for Spiritual Living is simply another wave of the same ocean, another beacon, another "hole in the flute." And I embrace this truth.
I take this moment to, through my power, bless our ministers Rev, Greg and Rev. Miriam. I bless our board, bless every volunteer, bless every soul who walks in our doors.
I give thanks for being fed by the talks our senior minister, Rev. Greg so lovingly shares with us each Sunday and his commitment to serving me and every member of our community. I give thanks for those who tend to the business of the day to day operations and maintenance our facility and grounds. I know my spiritual home, Claremont Center for Spiritual Living, is healthy and thriving in peace and prosperity.
I commit myself to hold fast to our principles of Love and compassion. I remind myself daily of our Oneness. I embrace our diversity and stand in awe of the beauty of the music we create together. I relax in the peace that trusting in Divine Law - Divine Order - Divine Grace gives me. I release all thoughts of discord. I accept responsibility for my own word, knowing its power, yet I remain compassionate with others. I live in Love. Love lives in me.
Love lives in the Claremont Center for Spiritual Living. It fills every crevice in the furniture, the air and the minds of every person here. There is no room for any thoughts words or actions to the contrary of our peace and love to lodge itself here. We are one; we are whole; we are perfect just the way we are as we continue to grow.
God is good - very good - perfect. I am good - very good - perfect. My Spiritual Center is good - very good - perfect. We are good - very good - perfect.
And so it is.
