In May of this year, my husband Bhima Kent White and I added some goldfish and koi to the small pond at Crystal Hermitage Garden. This led to a daily ritual of caring for the pond and the fish, followed by healing prayers in the Chapel. In September, we were offering prayers for the world in the chapel, but I was feeling discouraged and my inner prayer went something like this, “Divine Mother, Can you kindly help people to not be quite so bad…”
Immediately felt a strong flow of energy fill me from above, to correct my prayer, saying, “No! Pray for Dharma!”
It was such a strong flow of inspiration, reminding me of the many ways that souls can be distracted from Dharma and right action in this life. A soul must choose to align with Dharma in the choices that affect oneself and others. And I was inspired to pray for that, holding up Dharma as a divine principle available to all, should they be receptive to it.
This deep experience gave me renewed and deepened energy and understanding for these expansive prayers for blessing the planet and humanity. I invite you to join in these prayers either in the daily zoom prayers, or by using the recorded 20-minute healing visualization that I have included at the end of this blog.
Years ago, I was inspired by Frank Laubach, the author of Letters by a Modern Mystic…
Disillusioned by all our other efforts, we now see that the only hope left for the human race is to become like Christ.
― Frank C. Laubach, Letters by a Modern Mystic
Later in life, Frank Laubach retired to Washington, DC where he directed a small prayer group, dedicated to praying for national and international concerns. He remarked, “It is uncanny what can happen when you pray that way, but we learned that you have to keep it up every day. ”
I understand this now in light of Dharma. It is so easy for humanity to slip down from right action, with an excuse or self-justification here and there. We hold up the light of Dharma and right action high – as an offering for all souls.
