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…
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.
