Paradoxes of Prayer

Paradoxes of Prayer

When I was in my worst phases of fibromyalgia, I came across thie prayer. 

I hated it and yet I would read it.

I hated it because I didn’t yet want it to be true.  I still wanted the strength, health, riches, and power.  I wanted to be happy and healthy.  I didn’t want to be sick and weak and desperate. 

Now when I read it, it is still disturbing, but I realize how true it is.  

My soul had a journey for me.  My ego wasn’t on board, but got drug along for the ride.

Now I am grateful for the person I have become.  

My ego and my soul are becoming integrated into a harmonious whole.  

I wouldn’t be who I am today without the challenges that I have encountered and overcome in my life.

I like who I am.  I am an amazing loving, compassionate, caring, powerful woman.  

I am most richly blessed.
