Desire

“A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.” ~Thomas Merton
 

2011-05-22 19.13.43This weekend was spent guiding my yoga teachers in training in the work that lead me to this place of discernment I have found myself in. Looking at the fruits of the work of discovering one’s life purpose, desires and resistances has had a profound affect on me. I am so proud of this group of women.  I was humbled by their willingness to be vulnerable and open to discovery. There were breakthroughs, breakdowns and (my favorites) break-opens. Today as I reflect on my Lenten watch I am renewing my commitment to get specific with my own intention. I have left it vague because I am well aware of the power of prayer and intention. I have seen it work. So, tonight when I return home from teaching, I will start the journal that I have been meaning to commit to for, oh about, 20 years. In it I will work on writing my intention that I will then meditate with, pray on and consider as I move on this path.  I am curious and a little nervous about what will happen once I add this step to my life. Time to practice what I preach.

Dear God, Please help me on this road to self discovery.  Let my desire for fulfillment in You outweigh my resistance to change.  Amen
