Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

Promise of a new Day

Eat and carouse with Bacchus, or munch dry bread with Jesus, but don’t sit down without one of the gods. —

In religious communities, as in tribal societies, the ordinary events of life are sanctified. Orthodox Jews and Benedictine monks are alike in this, and so are devout Buddhists, Hindus, or animists. Prayer and ritual observance aren’t reserved for special occasions; they accompany sleeping, waking, the daily washing of the body, the simplest meal. Whatever our beliefs,
it’s possible for us to express the spiritual dimension of our lives in simple, everyday ways. And each expression strengthens our spirituality and extends it to flood more of our life with light. Whatever names we give to the truths of the spirits, our least act can connect us with them. The stronger our spiritual connection, the less we’ll be held back by our fears and self-doubts. If we can invoke a trusted guide for the ordinary gestures of life, then well never lack guidance in perplexity. I will feed my spirit and it will grow strong.
