Today’s Reflection: Introduce yourself to each colour of the sunset. Reacquaint yourself with the earth beneath your feet. Thank the air that surrounds you with every breath you take. Find yourself in the appreciation of life. ― Unattributed.

Today’s Reflection: Where there is love, there is life.
Where there is life, there is hope.
Where there is hope, there is faith.
Where there is faith, miracles happen.
Where there is peace, there is God.
And when you have God, you have everything. — Unattributed.

Morning Offering: 11. 15. 22

Today’s Reflection: Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.

We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push into the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love. — Attributed to Sir Francis Drake, c. 1577

Today’s Reflection: Lord God,
help me to orient my life toward you.
Help me to serve you rather than wealth.
Help me to prioritize those things that matter to you,
and forget about what the world values.
Help me to follow the path that you prepare for me. Amen. — Jesuit Prayer team.

Today’s Reflection: Every moment there are a million miracles happening around you: a flower blossoming, a bird tweeting, a bee humming, a raindrop falling, a snowflake wafting along the clear evening air. There is magic everywhere. If you learn how to live it, life is nothing short of a daily miracle. — Sadhguru.

Today’s Reflection: Something different from the ‘norm’ – Step over ants,
put worms back into the grass,
rescue baby caterpillars,
release spiders back into your garden,
open windows for bees to fly home,
they are all little souls that deserve a life too. — Author unknown.
