Hope lights my path
"... is the centering thought for today's meditation, which activates the power of hope in our hearts.
Hope is a key spiritual component of our joyful self. Spiritual hope is not an anxious wish for things to be better, instead it is the active engagement of our aspiration to the almighty force of evolution.
True hope ties our individuality to the cosmos, giving us the guidance and support to move toward out hopes and dreams. This expansion and fulfilment of our aspirations is an essential joy of life.
We feel happy when our love grows and our territory of influence expands, and hope is the leading edge of this expansion.
Our meditation today takes us to the source of hope, the source of our expansion of consciousness. From this still center of being, we illuminate the light of hope in our life"
- from Oprah & Deepaks 21 day free meditation program on happiness
Some people say that we should not use the term to hope, we should intend or we should manifest, we should be, or know or do. As if to hope is not strong, not using our power. But I would disagree.
To hope is courageous, it is sustaining, it is what keeps us close to God when it really counts & a lot like forgivenesses, it too is full of grace
