“Great Spirit, make of me a hollow vessel, that I may be filled with your light and your infinite guidance.”
The prayer is an old one, passed down to us from our Elders and coming from as far back as the Ancient Ones.
It is simple, in the way that the most important things are.
In the simplest, most important way, you are a vessel … a precious vase or bowl, created by the Divine Potter, meant to hold that which is most valuable.
What do you invite into the beautiful hollowness of your Spiritual self?
Is there room for Beauty in the vessel that you are? Do you make space within your heart for new experiences … to find the unexpected, and to welcome and nurture them?
The Elders teach that the ability to become … to embrace … the hollowness of yourself is to hold yourself in right relationship, with conscious intent. It is choosing to live On Purpose … each day, each moment.
You think you receive, they say … and without letting go of your own resistance, you remain separate from the beauty of that gift.
It is in becoming hollow … washing away the dust of Ego, scouring out the stain of old hurt … that you truly become open to receiving your greatest gifts.
Consider this week’s quote:
The truth of who you are … the power of your own Creation, is in reaching beyond yourself … past the limits you thought were yours … stretching your heart and your spirit, to touch the Maker.
That touch! That light! That is your Highest Self connecting with All That Is.
In the pure light of Creation, YOU are celebrated! You are loved … you are cherished. The wonderful, hollow vessel that is your spirit is cradled in the palm of the Great Spirit.
The breath of Supreme Love is breathed into your Self. Listen to your heart. Be filled with the abundance of Spirit. You are … magnificent!
Live on Purpose … Change the World!
