This blog is all about Spiritual Commentary on excerpts from the book Reality, which is available as a free download.

A spiritual life must have some form of prayer, at least in my reckoning.

We must form the connection to God with God--He reaches "down" when we reach "up"...

There have been times in my life when my ego-nature was so caught-up in the turmoil of life on earth and I was suffering about as much as I possibly could (and feeling about as low as dirt) when God reached down seemingly on His own.

I've learned that we can "reach out" first, even when we aren't aware we're doing it...

Here's a sweetly submissive prayer to our Creator:

"I am, O my God, but a tiny seed which Thou hast sown in the soil of Thy love, and caused to spring forth by the hand of Thy bounty. This seed craveth, therefore, in its inmost being, for the waters of Thy mercy and the living fountain of Thy grace. Send down upon it, from the heaven of Thy loving-kindness, that which will enable it to flourish beneath Thy shadow and within the borders of Thy court. Thou art He Who watereth the hearts of all that have recognized Thee from Thy plenteous stream and the fountain of Thy living waters."

Bahá’u’lláh: Prayers and Meditations, Selection CVI, p. 178
