An Addict’s Prayer for Guidance

Again and again we are overwhelmed by the littleness of our lives, the personal demand – Strike with Passionour addiction. There is often no breathing moment that permits us to lift up our heads and take the long look and sense how this struggle can possibly add to an ultimate meaning our lives are involved. Thus we see the world of need and necessity and urgency through the greyness of our addiction; through the tussle and wrestling with very great anxieties. We admit that we do not know how to deal with that which awaits us tomorrow, and in our desperation and panic we find ourselves unable to center our spirit upon the meaning of this great and significant moment – we turn to your love for guidance.

Hence we are here, Grace, with all the other addicts of shades, voices and vices – Thy children, each with his or her own life and world of need. We lay gently upon Thy altar our life as it is, and we hold it there, waiting for Thy Spirit to invade our spirits so that we shall burst into the living of our lives with the passion our addiction as sapped – whatever may be the circumstances by which our next minute and the next until those minutes become tomorrow and tomorrow, may be consumed in thriving. For this, O God, we utter in the quietness our thanks and our praise.

About Reputationist

When I started this blog in 2007 the following is what I was up to - things have changed - some. I'm what my handle states - an Oldude. The problem with this acknowledgment is my thinking and ambitions have not quite got the message of my "oldness". I've started an online Coaching practice and my rant is about how to improve long term happiness - For the World. My thing, I believe I can change the world - isn't that a hoot. The way I intend to change the world is to foster a wider and deeper appreciation for "mindfulness": The daring, flair and grace of Jayz; the political savvy of Cornel West; the creativity of Mos Def with the business and cultural daring of Richard Simmons. I've thought enough - being a philosopher of sorts - and trained hard with some of the sharpest minds ever on the planet - Cornel West and Michel Foucault to know the total absurdity of trying to change the world - but I do and I will. There it is showing my age again.
