Inner Life = Outer Life

From “A Common Prayer”

Dear God,

We pray for balance and exchange. Balance us like trees. As the roots of a tree shall equal its branches so must the inner life be equal to the outer life. And as the leaves shall nourish the roots, so shall the roots give nourishment to the leaves. Without equality and exchange of nourishment there can be no growth and no love.

This reminds me of “Faith without works is dead”. A balance of footwork and connection to something greater. Without either I am unbalanced. Today I am and I love my life!
