Prayer for Thursday

The Hindu festival of Navratri continues today.

Mind is consciousness which has put on limitations.
You are originally unlimited and perfect.
Later you take on limitations and become the mind.
~ Ramana Maharshi

The man whispered, “God, speak to me.” And a meadowlark sang.
But, the man did not hear.

Then the man yelled “God, speak to me.” Thunder rolled across the sky.
But, the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said, “God, let me see you.”
And the stars shined brightly.
But the man did not notice.

And, the man shouted, “God, show me a miracle.” And, a life was born.
But the man did not know.

So, the man cried out in despair, “Touch me God, and let me know you are here.” Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man.
But, the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

So remember, don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way that you expect.
Take notice of the blessings around you.
