I was sitting out on my veranda and thoughts of the practice of lovingkindness and forgiveness meditations and of prayer came my way. I was thinking of how the power of these practices at least in part exists in the ongoing connection with something greater than ourselves whether Named or Nameless.  It’s not so much that our meditations or prayers get answered in the forms that we feel are most appropriate, even if our preferred answers might have to yield to a higher wisdom.  It is in that ongoingly intentional and energetic connection which when engaged in in a certain way is at the same time humbling and empowering; that each of us and each member or constituent part of creation, perhaps small in a relative way, are in that small way sharing in a spontaneous, interrelated, and ever-unfolding universe that is truly magnificent.
