My Life Is My Prayer- Prayer Eclipse Part III

"Our own life has to be our message" is how Thich Nhat Hanh puts it. 

I say, "Our life is our prayer."

It really is the same thing, though, isn't it? How we choose to live our lives is both the message and the prayer we send out to the world.  For when we pray, we believe, and when we believe, we act, and when we act the world observes, and our actions become our message.  It is the law of cause and effect, the law of mind action, no matter how rocky and steep the pathway.

When someone asks, "How is your prayer life?", I may say to them, "What do you see?"  Whatever actions you see me taking are a direct response to prayer, so I broadcast loudly what my prayer life is like.  I remember reading that Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "What you are speaks so loudly I can't hear a word you're saying."  It doesn't work if we just talk about praying, but we don't have to formally prayer, because prayer is our continual awareness of our connection with the divinity inside us.  When we act from that point of reference--or point of reverence--then our whole lives become prayers.

A wonderful songwriter, Lucile Olsen, wrote "Our thoughts are prayers and we are always praying."
When we understand that our thoughts transform into actions, then we are praying unceasingly by what we do.  Brother Lawrence prayed while scrubbing the pots and pans in the abbey.  We pray when whatever we are doing is centered in Spirit and in Love.

Sweet Spirit, let all my actions come from that inner place in me where you reside, so that I am praying always in all ways in everything I say and do.

You might just have a hunch, or begin notice how things are falling into place, or feel amazingly motivated in a certain direction. There are often signs along the way that we miss because we're going too fast.
