LOST MODE OF PRAYER
I have been attuning with a cd by Jonathan Goldman in conjuction with Gregg Braden - the powerful 'sounds' of Gods name. This led me into the reading Bradens book 'Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer' - I was up reading way too late!, not being able to put the book down until my body demanded I yield to its desire to sleep!.
Although only half way through I am deeply moved by this brothers heart of sadak seeking.
I felt the stirrings of being touched deep within my santcum of wisdom and knowing. I felt kindled by this brothers way of using words to communicate his feelings, thoughts and personal journey.
Its sweetly presented and for me, is just one of those 'treasure' books I encounter flowing from a place within another that I feel deeply intimate with.
I felt a namaste communion with his journey and his inner yielding, an appreciation for him 'being in his dharma' and networking with a zeal and passion that evoked the 'yes yes yes dance' within me as I read.
Feel moved to share a few of the 'many' bits I have highlighted already.
"Hidden within us we already have the power to communicate with the force that is responsble for our existence! - to do so however, we must discover who we really are"
"Hidden in the knowledge of those who have come before us, we find the wisdom to empower our prayers of healing and peace"
"Wisdom is the healed expression of our hurt"
"Blessing is the ancient secret that releases us from life's hurt long enough to replace it with another feeling.... during the blessing a doorway opens for us to begin our healing and move on with life"
"There is something 'out there' Just beyond our perceptions of the everyday world there's a presence, or force, that's at once both mysterious and comforting. We talk about it. We feel it. We believe in it and pray to it, perhaps without even understnding precisely what it is"
"Through the blanket of energy that bathes our world, we're all linked in ways that we're only beginning to understand"
. in appreciation of this book and of the brother who wrote it.
