Today I was struck that being there at sunrise in contemplative prayer is like being there as the Gods recreate the world. Each day has become like a small creation and now I am getting to add my energy to that. A very special part of me now exists in each day. I am part of it and it is part of me.
I am now truly the owner of my day. It has stopped being something which just happens to me.
I am truly connected to this day and all that is in it. Taking time to rise and pray in the mornings is an honour and a chance to experience the great interconnection of all. This web we call life. A web of interdependence of the sacred. Yes we are dependent and the Gods and they on us. Our relationship is not one of Great God above and oh so puny human sending up prayers. Ours is a relationship of mutual dependence of this great interconnection.
This is what regular prayer time and especially Morning Prayer gives you, a chance to really connect to that web which so often we as humans forget we belong too.
Why not make time and join your energy to the daily recreation of our world. Take your part in owning the day.
