Weaving Joy in My Life
by Rev. Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
There is One Life; a Life so ancient, creative, and beautiful that all It does is create from Its own Goodness. I call this One Life the Creator. It is Life living in the hustle and bustle of everyday activity and It is the Life in those quiet space waiting to be noticed. It is active and receptive, always giving and always receiving from and to Itself. The Creator is the very basis of All There Is. I recognize It in this moment and know All Possibility.
I recognize myself in complete and total alignment with the One Ancient, Creative, Beautiful Life. I am all that the Creator is – beauty, health, wisdom, joy, freedom, creativity, and divine unfoldment. I am actively involved in my life and I am also still at the very center of my being for that is the place where I meet the Divine. It is in this meeting that I realize all potential and all joy. I am so wholly and perfectly aligned with the Divine that anything that does not support my life falls away never to return. I am because the Creator is. As I know this for me, I know this for the person who reads this prayer.
I affirm and declare joy in my being and in every activity of my life. Joy is the fabric of awe that gives way to the mystical experience of oneness. It is the blessing, the weaver of goodness in self and the beauty in others. Through this joy, I am united and woven with all other joyful beings in the universe. I am the good of Life letting itself be known through the joy in my spirit and the joy in my life. It is my experience and I claim it wholly and fully. I know this for all others who join me in this joy-filled mission.
I am grateful for the realization of joy. I am grateful that my life is an experience of goodness and that this experience gives me the ability to believe and know all that I am. Life is good and there is no greater gratitude than to know this.
With a grateful heart, I release my word into the Law knowing it cannot come back to me void. And so it is. Amen.
