GOD'S PRAYER TO YOU by Sandra Allagapen

I was taking part in a guided meditation one day…

 When we were told that God/the Divine was the energy that had come forward and He/She was praying, it caused my left-brained self to come to a screeching halt! God praying? Hold on, WE pray to God. Who would God pray to?? So I asked right there and then: “Who do you pray to, God?”

To my surprise, the answer rang clear as a bell: “I pray to you”. Over the course of the next day, this message came through and it remains to this day, one of my favorite poems, one that I feel drawn to share as often as I can.

It has opened my eyes and my heart to all the support that is there for me. So often we feel alone because we feel that our prayers are not being answered. But in truth we often push away the help we prayed for, simply because it isn’t what we expected.

If we ask for peace and a bird lands close to us the next day, do we take time to really see it and wonder at how unafraid it is of us and laugh at its cheek and cheer? Do we allow ourselves to be transported if only for one minute to a place of joy – and peace – or do we walk on by, because of our expectations of how that peace should come to us, thereby ignoring the fact that just that one minute of connection with the bird, could have moved us from our mind into our heart and led us to the solution we had prayed for?

This poem has transformed my perception of the Divine and my relationship with God. I pray that it does the same for you. 

God's Prayer to You

I pray 
that you are willing to receive the abundance of blessings
 that I wish to shower you with.

I pray
 that you consider the opportunities 
that I lovingly create for you.

I pray
 that you open-heartedly listen for my voice
 in all of my creations, big and small.

I pray
 that you allow the friends I send to care for you,
 to guide and support you.

I pray
 that every time you look at the stars or see a bird, 
you recognize that they are the “I love you” notes
 I have left all over the universe for you.

I pray 
that you accept all that you have asked me for.

I pray
 that you let me remind you 
of all the magic and power I gave you.

I pray
 that you remember that every day
 I place my infinite faith in you 
and that you learn to trust yourself too.

I pray
 that you surrender 
all of your fears and doubts to me.

I pray
 that in your times of sorrow, 
you let me hold your hand and dry your tears.

I pray
 that you rest, play, laugh and love 
with the childlike abandon that I created you with.

I pray
 that you know that nothing you can say, do, think or feel 
could ever diminish who you are to me.

I pray
 that you love yourself as I love you.

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held

EDITOR'S NOTE:

This was composed by a very gifted and beautiful soul: a regular contributor to our poetry project, and dear friend of mine, Janavi Held, whose life is gradually being taken from us by an incurable illness. She has been suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Internal Adhesions for six painful years now, and neither her insurance nor the government healthcare will help her. She reaches out to us, her sisters, as a last plea. This is a poem she wrote yesterday on her birthday, in which she offers us the gift of her friendship. May it touch your generous hearts and inspire you to reach out to her in her plight.


Dear Friends,

The last time I was able to leave the house was by ambulance on my way to the hospital. After many long hours in the emergency room I was admitted and taken upstairs. After everyone left I sat on the hospital bed, knees to chest, bracing my body against the pain and trembling.

The light of this cold day was fading. I turned my eyes to the la…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Depression
Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
