Loving and caring for another wholeheartedly uses my energy optimally. And it does not use up my energy. Rather, more energy recharges my body during my acts of caring. Could this be how beloved Blessed Theresa of Calcutta was able to care for so many? I think by giving of her wholeness and holiness, she allowed for a continuing flow of energized love to course through her tiny frame creating a tremendously productive life.
In the New Year let us magnify the blessedness of the season and carry it on into all new beginnings in our lives - right now and all time to come. Let us remember that it is our thoughts and deeds that shape our lives and form the place we stand amongst our brothers and sisters all over the world.
Take some time to say and reflect on this prayer as you prepare to go into the New Year. Make these moments a time of reflection and with a firm resolve make your highest hopes a plan for heavenly action.
"Hope for Holiness.
Abundant energy arising
Recharging our body
From attitudes of love, kindness, caring
Daily living all that it can be
All that it is meant to be as kindred souls in God
Exemplifying our loving nature
By loving unconditionally.
Flow on in my life River of Love
Flow on in my life
Carrying me along your swift current
Washing away debris, energizing me
Clearing my thoughts
That I may clearly see
My Loving Nature."
