Concentrated Goodness

“Lord, make me a channel of your peace.” – “Prayer of St. Francis”

This is one of my favorite prayers (funny for a guy who considers himself non-religious). That’s because of how I define the words “Lord” and “channel”. To me, Lord means God, and God is simply the word Good that’s had its two Os squeezed together to create concentrated goodness.  My definition of channel, in the context of this prayer, is conduit, the electrical kind. In other words, as I speak the words of this prayer, what I’m really saying is “Let the concentrated goodness of the universe flow through me and into others.” By flowing through me I am electrified with concentrated goodness, that spark ignites everyone I come into contact with and… ILML!
