Daily Thoughts and Prayers

 

May 19th

 

 

Salient Thought for the Day

 

      Simplicity, humility, whole-heartedness, can be cultivated by right direction of our thought.

 

Lines to Memorize

 

      Many times I have thought, as I scattered Thy unending gift,

      That this vessel was emptied;

      But it ever remains full of freshness.

      I know neither to fill it nor empty it.

      I only know that Thou hast placed this inexhaustible cup in my hand.

      I carry it where'er I go.

      'Tis Thou who givest and keepest,

      I only know that I am Thy servant,

      Thy humble cup-bearer.

 

Lesson

 

      There are people who find it difficult to be simple, humble and direct; but these qualities are essential in the spiritual life, and we must develop them. They may not be natural to our life as it is, but we can change our life. We can make it whatever we wish to make it.

 

Prayer

 

      Lift my heart in absolute simplicity.

      Supreme Spirit of the universe, who is Mother and Father and Divine Protector,

      Surround me and always guide my steps.

      Make my heart glad

      And graciously bestow upon me Your Peace.
