PRAYER FOR PROPER PERCEPTION
Being the instrument through which the heavens
reflect on earth, my perception is clear.
No longer bound by another’s will,
I find freedom in fulfilling the Divine Will.
Instead of stubbornly sticking to my perceptions
of what I think is true, I invite a higher way of seeing.
Love, which sets souls in motion,
speaks to my heart, and flings me like an arrow
into the world from its bow.
With the key in my hand that opens the door
to the greater dimensions, I perceive my tribulations
as the gifts they are intended to be.
My inner relinquishing of the voracious appetite
to rationally control perception, creates a transfiguring
and rippling effect of good in my world.
Recognizing the less I carry, the easier I advance through life,
making me impervious to the little petty games of the ego.
No longer succumbing to the temptations of earthly perceptions,
my heart opens to a finer compassionate way of being.
With the sensitivity of a deer and the courageousness of a lion,
I stand in the midst of the emotionally whirling energies of my world.
I see as God sees, perceiving a larger picture
than the personal concerns of the particulars.
I understand from a higher perspective
and am comforted by these insights.
No reversal can take this awareness away from me
as I’m carried like a ship on a journey across the ocean.
Like a proclamation of springtime for lovers,
I’m moved by Spirit to know as God knows.
Wildly embracing a greater trust for living,
the Divine intention births itself as me.
The inner splendor reveals the vision of heaven on Earth
and I’m grateful to know its blessings.
I surrender to this warmth of proper perception.
And So It Is!
