08/21…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“Oh Thou, from whom the breath of life comes,
who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.
May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.
Your Heavenly Domain approaches.
Let Your will come true – in the universe (all that vibrates)
just as on earth (that is material and dense).
Give us wisdom (understanding, assistance) for our daily need,
detach the fetters of faults that bind us,
like we let go the guilt of others.
Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations),
but let us be freed from that what keeps us off from our true purpose.
From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act,
the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth.
Amen”
~ Matt. 6:9-13 (The Lord’s Prayer – translated from first century Aramaic)  I was floored the first time I read this.  Can we recite this instead? (I have the Aramic version as well if you would like to see it.)

Quote of the Day:
“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. … The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.”
~ Carl Sagan

Excerpt of the Day:
“God’s gentle whisper spoke louder than the shouts of everyday life.”
~ “The Whole Story” by Carrie Hokanson
