My youngest step son doesn’t like fiction. It’s made school difficult since most of what he’s been assigned to read, until now, is fiction. Give him a science book or a how-to book and he’ll stay up all night. Give him a novel and he’ll volunteer to clean the litter box.
As an author, I always love to know the reasons why people read what they read. Why do you read the back of the cereal box? Why do you choose non-fiction over fiction? Why do you insist on having an explosion in your fiction? Why do you hate it when people fall in love? Why do you read this blog? Why do you read the morning paper?
So, today, my post is for all of you – why do you read what you read? (And, please, if you read the cereal box, I really want to know what’s so engrossing on there!)
Day 39 – Gratitude
I inhale and receive your love
I exhale and share it with the world.
I thank you for walking with me on my life path
Thank you for guiding the evolution of my mind,
for opening my heart and spirit to receive.
Thank you for transforming me so that I may live a positive existence
and influence all I come in contact with.
May I always serve your divine will.
Day 38 – Freeing the Heart and Mind
You know the desires of my heart better than I, Goddess/God/Spirit
Help me to recognize and separate the things I want from the things I need.
I pray now to be aware and accepting of the things I need
to make my life one lived in happiness, charity and peace.
I pray for the faith and strength to release the things I want
if they do not serve the divine path you have laid for me.
May the wisdom of Goddess/God/Spirit guide me and comfort me.
Day 37 – Accepting Love
On this day Goddess/God/Spirit
I release the sadness and loneliness of the past
And I consciously take action to heal my heart
so that love in all its forms may enter into my life.
I ask for your guidance in this Goddess/God/Spirit
Lead me to the people who will cherish me and easily share their affection.
