Today is Clean Monday for Orthodox Christians.
The Divine never says that suffering is necessary –
this idea is created by human beings.
The Divine asks us to be happy, harmonious and peaceful.
~ Mother Meera
Spark of Creation, Beginning of Beginnings,
Let Your Holy Embodied Love live through each of us uniquely
Help us turn every event towards its best place in love’s mandala.
In Your sweet generosity, bring me all that’s uniquely mine,
To love, heal, create, destroy —
As You were in the beginning, so You unfold through me and blossom,
You hear my laughter, pain and joy. You know the name inside my name.
All of us can rest in You as You hold each beauty and sacrifice,
And Your love, personal, intimate and divine, always begins and never ends.
