Daily Thoughts and Prayers

 

May 22nd

 

 

Salient Thought for the Day

 

      The aim of all spiritual teaching is to make us loving, pure, humble and unselfish.

 

Lines to Memorize

 

      Altar-flower, I have watched thee with deepest wonderment.

      Thou fragrant beauty of delicate loveliness,

      Thou hast given thine all!

      Now thou art fading.

      Art thou dead?

      Nay, thou art risen to thy glory —

      Thou art ascended!

 

Lesson

 

      Religions do not differ fundamentally one from the other; they all point the way upward, Godward. They tell us never to be afraid to lift up our head to God. They strive to give us a greater vision, to make us forget our smallness and realize our Divine inheritance. They show us the way to attain fulfillment; they say we must cease to cling to the little notion of “I and mine” and cultivate humility and simplicity.

 

Prayer

 

     In this hour of worship, I gather up my thoughts

      And lay them at Your feet, my loving Mother.

      Lend me Your tender protection.

      Lead me in the path of humility and unselfishness.

      Protect me from all ignorance,

      And enfold me with Your holy peace.
