Quiet Mind, Open Heart

“I’ve heard some people condense the activities of spiritual life into these words: quiet the mind; open the heart… I think of anything that quiets the mind as meditation and anything that opens the heart as prayer.” Hope for Today

What a wonderful reading today. Breathing deeply quiets my mind. Pulling weeds quiets my mind. Getting on my knees after waking or before retiring quiets my mind. Smiling and laughing opens my heart. Playing guitar opens my heart. Being of service in recovery opens my heart. Without even realizing it I’ve discovered that I meditate and pray all the time. How awesome! ILML
