Intercession - Revisited

There was a time when I was very depressed and I know that my mother was also feeling my pain and, like a lot of parents, wanted to do what she could to alleviate my suffering. I'm sure she was praying for me to see the Light. Well, her prayer did work because I did see the Light. I started exploring different religions and spiritual beliefs. I even returned to church for a few months. Then I realised that the religious path wasn't for me. My way is that of Love-Light that embraces all.

I am very grateful my mother interceded on my behalf and the Light was able to direct me to a path that resonated with me.

While I do not believe in converting anyone to my way, I do believe in interceding on people's behalf.

I pray that everyone lives as their true self as love, light, peace, joy, wisdom, abundance and freedom now and forever.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled
as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Prayer of St Francis of Assisi

Love and light.
