(How am I supposed to call you, anyway? This whole Yahweh, Jehovah, Father-God just doesn't work for me on a personal level, and on a community level? I'm still looking for a way to make peace with that.)
That question really works as a stumbling-block, by the way, distracting me from the real work of talking to you.
Being with you.
Centering in you.
There are even stories of those who let go of the duality this dense matter presents and become one with you.
And if that's not distracting, I don't know what is.
So, anyway, I heard a prayer in an unlikely place -- unlikely to me, anyway, and mine -- and I pray it again, hoping my faith is sufficient to know your presence and live your answers.
Let us pray.
I am tempted to regard my fears and disappointments as setbacks, limitations, obstacles. Please grant me wisdom, your truth turned to action, so that I might walk in your way and shine with your light, no matter the trials.
And so it is.
Thank you for responding to my request.
P.S. You are pretty awesome.
