Excerpt:

share joy“Effective prayer is buoyed by an intense desire for increased grace. The desire must be combined with a genuine effort to express courage, forbearance, love, and good deeds…We are worthy of Love. We can be patient with ourselves and with others, because in this chaotic world most of us are neophytes at assimilating the divine character. Not only is it difficult to understand a God we can’t physically control, but we’ve also been hardwired to materialize our prayers by saying them out loud or repeating them ad nauseam….We can feel the aspiration, humility, gratitude, and love which our words express, and this God accepts. We can get our act together and help our self. We can welcome new knowledge and apply it in our prayers.”

Zen kitty and poetry
Cats Sleep Anywhere Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair. Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge. Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do. Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks. Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere. ...Eleanor Farjeo
