Daily Thoughts and Prayers


August 18th



Salient Thought for the Day


      When we are resourceful and have found our contact with something higher, we are never sad.

Lines to Memorize


      He is come.

      Behold him standing at thy gate.

      Art thou blind with joy?

      Art thou mad in ecstasy?

      He is come.

      Keep Him not standing at thy gate.

      Mystic heart, thou art blessed,

      Yea, thou art blessed this day.



      Joyousness characterizes all great souls. We are constantly looking up. We are ever reaching out for something higher. We are full of unrest. We feel intuitively that nothing but the higher can make us happy. Happiness requires a great deal more than material things. We all find this out sooner or later. We must come in contact with the highest and holiest, and we must have willingness to receive. Our inner being must be made fertile soil, then our life becomes fruitful and joyous.



      Compassionate One, help me to express the spirit of joy in all my thoughts, words and actions.

      May I never yield to sadness or gloom.

      Grant that my contact with Your Divine Being may grow ever closer and closer,

      And may my happiness rest wholly in You, who are the Source of all joy and peace.
