By Chuchi Daroy

“Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for coming down to humanity, bearing the flesh of our very DNA. Thank you for suffering our mortality, the groaning nature of our very cells, the short-mindedness of our neural circuits, and the frustrations of our energies and impulses. In my labours to learn the mysteries of creation, in my study of our DNA, let me breathe in your Spirit of life eternal. Where there is grief and hatred, let your boundless mercy enflesh in me through my very words and actions. Where there is confusion and ignorance, let my heart bear the light of your love. Your grandest design, that is man, I cannot fathom, but your will, O Lord, is my life's meaning.”



“Dear Child of God, you are loved with a love that nothing can shake, a love that loved you long before you were created, a love that will be there long after everything has disappeared. . . . And God wants you to be like God. Filled with life and goodness and laughter—and joy.”

Desmond Tutu


“Everybody needs God...The issue is: will you come in and sit down with the One who is hosting the party? Will you accept the divine hospitality and join in the dance with God and the other guests?”

Thomas Keating, Manifesting God


Attention to detail
comes with growing older.
Things that once were done unconsciously
now take conscious effort.
This is a wondrous benefit.
A slower walking pace reveals songbirds
never seen before.
A slower working pace reveals opportunities
never explored before.
A slower living pace reveals beauty
never experienced before.

We are slowing down
but waking up.
We are producing less,
but learning more.
We are doing less,
and experiencing more.

  From William Martin, The Sage's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for the Second Half of Life.
