Pray and manifest your power

The Sufis have a saying: Praise Allah and tie your camel to a post. This brings together both parts of practice: pray, yes, but also make sure that you do what is necessary in the world. - Jack Kornfield, Seeking the Heart of Wisdom

 

It’s easy to play the martyr.

We spend our lives in struggle and turmoil longing for the sweet by-and-by when everything will be fine.

Today is the sweet by-and-by.

Yes, right now.

It’s here.

If we’re to have good in our lives, it’s up to us to seek it out.

Here are two things the God words teach about faith: One, it says that faith is like a mustard seed.

The tiniest bit of it can grow tall and in its own time will sprout.

The other thing the God words say is that faith without works is dead.

If you’re not doing something, then you’re not keeping your faith alive.

Pray.

Turn it over to God. But do something, too.

Stop waiting for someone to come along and rescue you.

 

Learn to rescue yourself.
