This week I share some meditative thoughts from this week’s vespers service:
Renewal is a journey taken breath by breath, moment by moment and again and again. Tonight may gratitude guide our inhalations and our exhalations as we breath ourself into new spaces of acceptance and healing. Breath by breath we connect with our hearts. Breath by breath we recall our aspirations and breathe ourselves into that first beginning. Breath by breath we reclaim the truth of our bodies and allow ourselves to be touched by the world around us. Breath by breath. Moment by moment.
Breath by breath, moment by moment, I remember that I renew my life with the dawning of every day. Breath by breath, moment by moment, I affirm the new chances for connection from those I love. Breath by breath, moment by moment, I remember that together we are more. Breath by breath, moment by moment, I remember that to be renewed is to be recalled to the wholeness that is our birthright.
Breath by breath
What relationships do I need to renew?
What connections do I need to deepen?
What aspirations do I need to reimagine?
Breath by breath, I commit to renewing my spirit.
Breath by breath, I envision myself renewing my body.
Breath by breath, I see myself opening my mind to that larger imagination which is the source of renewal.
With each breath, I am grateful for the opportunities for renewal.
With each breath, I am resolved to be renewed.
