- Prayerfully re-read these passages aloud in the manner of Lectio Divina, so your whole being can hear, feel and sense them. What do you hear for your journey now?
- This week, shine the inner, loving light of awareness on your actions, attitudes, dispositions or even memories. With curiosity and acceptance, what do you learn?

We are fortunate that God in His wisdom gives us a lifetime to discover the unconscious programs within us that influence our actions. Our meditations are an unequivocal means to uncover those hidden motivations that we become so content to live with. Thank you, Holy Spirit for your inspiration.
May I ask this community for additional prayers for me , especially tomorrow, Thursday. I am undergoing a left lung lobectomy and may not be joining the chapels for some time. My saintly grandmother used to instruct us saying we should pray for those who cannot pray for themselves. How wise she was. Now I understand. Thank you, chapel-goers! Marie from Long Island, NY

Sunday February 5: The Greatest Service
Where can I make compassionate attention my intention this week? I belong to a group of Zoom friends who have been meeting regularly the past three years. Health and wellness goals brought us together and are still important. We struggle to provide enough structure to our time together to challenge our growth areas, while remaining fluid enough when a crisis comes we can support each other. I’m not certain how my compassionate attention will best serve this group, yet I know that it must. <3 linda

A key phrase springs out from my lectio: when we take a clean look at what we see – stop being strangers to ourselves, we increase the number of ways we can respond to what arises”. Though this has been one of the most difficult years of my life, it’s also been an energizing experience of detachment from myself to give my all. “That clean look” has been possible by my consenting to the work of the Indwelling Spirit. Tuesday I celebrated my birthday. So much for which to be grateful. I simmer in non-dual gratitude.
