Our Decisions really matter

The poem below by Jigme Lingpa and the Presence of God phrase from the Irish Jesuits Sacred Space prayer website underneath the poem go a long way in reminding me that my thoughts, actions and deeds in life really do matter…Eagle_2

Jigme Lingpa

As the eagle soars in the endless blue,
Its shadow races after it, far below.
Yet space does not divide: bird and shadow
are linked. So too each act—each choice
and consequence.  Tibet, 18th Century

The Presence of God

I reflect for a moment on God’s presence around me and in me.
Creator of the universe, the sun and the moon, the earth,
every molecule, every atom, everything that is:
God is in every beat of my heart. God is with me, now.
