PRAYER at DAWN:— Bodmin Hermit (@TheCarceri) November 14, 2022
Lord, giver of life and author of salvation,
I see you in fire
in all life.
Tho' I cannot see your face
yet you speak your promises to me
in moon and sun.
You call out to me in the morning light.

These trails are left by TINY caterpillars living *inside* leaves. Inside the caterpillar lives a bacteria. The bacteria causes the caterpillar to emit a hormone in its spit, which keeps the leaf green. It stops autumn in its tracks until it emerges.

You can understand why the response in the USA was and continues to be so different. The Tory government blundered their way into our 'no growth' economy. Huge challenge to Rishi et al.

Contemplative activist and Episcopal priest Adam Bucko believes that contemplation is a universal call that prepares us to seek and do justice:
Intimacy with God does not belong to a special group of religious professionals but is and should be available to all. It is our birthright. It is why we were born. It is why we are here, to open ourselves “to the inner mystery of the heart of reality which is the heart of each one of us.”  To open ourselves to that love, to see the world through its eyes, and to live from it with courage and commitment. . . .
All of this has to start with each of us. It has to start with my commitment to a practice of prayer. All of this has to start with my adopting a way of life that can help me grow and nourish my spiritual life, including building community, so that I may become God’s hands and feet and microphone for healing and justice.
Bucko shares several steps for those beginning a path of contemplative action:
As you move toward a life of personal and political holiness, may your journey be blessed and may your life and presence remind those around you of God’s presence. Deepening your connection to God, in you and around you, do not be afraid to feel the love, the joy, and also the pain that are present. Don’t be afraid to have a heart and to risk breaking your heart. Feel into it all and know that every time you are touching the pain, you are touching the sacred wound of God. God who is always accompanying us and guiding us. God who is suffering with us. . . . God whose life-giving love and justice will one day be “all in all” [1 Corinthians 15:28].
"Peacemakers should resist peacemaking that is rooted in anxiety and to choose peacemaking out of a posture of love. When love enters the equation, everything changes.
We begin to ask ourselves what we’re for instead of what we’re against".
Richard Rohr OFM

A gift from Covid lock down?
I don't know about you, but one of the unexpected outcomes of lock down has been the rediscovery and renewal of my Catholic faith. My interest in contemplative prayer is all consuming.

My Mum always described me as a big kid, I guess because I could never be too serious for long.

Well I'm about to start a major change in direction and style.
I've been very interested for some time now in the idea of a commonplace book. In the past readers used to annotate books in the margins or they would slip in references on a piece of paper to other sources.
I've decided that now is the time to try and turn my blog into my commonplace book.
