Monday Musings

Today my Monday Musings are inspired by KS, who writes a beautiful blog called "While We're Waiting".

Her words today really touched my heart, and left me wanting to pass along her kindness and love.

You see she asked others to pray today, or in her words "wish on a star, or cross your fingers, or ask the cosmos to align just the right way. Do whatever it is you do when the world just isn’t as it should be."  Beautifully written by her.

I have to admit I'm not the most religious person, and definitely through the valleys of life have had my doubts, and questioned just about everything.  But it is through the valleys, and/or rough patches in life that I have found and continue to find a deeper spiritual awareness. And I believe there is power in prayer.

What if everyone prayed each day, not only for themselves, their families, loved ones, etc, but for others they don't know?  And like KS said it doesn't even need to be a prayer, just send some positive thoughts, or wish on a star.

Do such prayers and positive energy,/thoughts, feelings have a profound effect on our world?  While I think no one can answer that for sure....there has been more and more evidence over the years to say it does.  No one can make another believe, but then again it can't hurt to pray right?

So today pass the kindness along.  Inspire.  Love.  Hope.  Have faith.  And most of all....Pray for those you know and those you don't.  Even if you aren't religious or spiritual, even if you are the biggest doubter, pessimist, or whatever....just try it.  Pray. Wish.

There are many people, and many things in life that could benefit from a prayer.  Pray for those who are sick. Pray for those who are struggling.  Pray for those who are alone.  Pray for those who have lost their way.  Pray for those with addictions and other unhealthly habits. Pray for those who are jobless, homeless, and can't feed their families.  Pray for people to use good judgement. Pray for peace. Pray for a safer world. Pray for goodness. Pray for our world to be filled with more kindness, compassion, honesty, loyalty, and love.

    This post just made me smile... for some many reasons. I considered myself "religious" when I was younger. I went to church, a lot, and believed in God and did the Sunday School thing and all of that. As I've gotten older, I've changed my perspective. I'm not so much religious anymore as I am spiritual. I think, personally, being spiritual is even more amazing than being religious. And no matter what higher power we do or do not believe in... the world could use all of us to believe in love and caring and compassion.
    Beautiful post my friend.
