Daily Meditation – Wisdom for the week

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Daily Meditation – Jesus invites us to rest

The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while." People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.

- Mark 6:30-32

Daily Meditation – God is bigger than storms

Take, Lord, and Receive
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will.
All I have and call my own.
Whatever I have or hold, you have given me.
I return it all to you and surrender it wholly to be governed by your will.
Give me only your love and your grace and I am rich enough and ask for nothing more.
- St. Ignatius of Loyola
- In honor of the Ordination of Deacon Brian Campbell - Saturday, February 7, 2015

Daily Meditation – Negative programming in our mind

Think of someone who generates negative emotions in you. In your mind, invite this person into your presence, feel the emotions and see how you are revealed to yourself and how human nature works in the circumstance. Anthony De Mello in his amazing work, The Way to Love, indicates that such meditation will produce revelations that will “widen your heart till there is room in it for every living creature.” He goes on to state the following three revelations:

1) Ask yourself, am I in charge of the situation or is the situation in charge of me.

2) Certain others in the same circumstance would not be negatively affected by this person. Hence, the negative feeling come not by this person but by your programming.

3) See what happens when you really understand this.

Listen to the revelations of human nature and how previously these persons had the power to create negative emotions within you. The negative emotions will turn into gentleness and compassion.

- Adapted from the The Way to Love by Anthony De Mello (Author)
