Back in 2003 after having spent the year before reading Sarah Ban Breathnach's book "Simple Abundance" I took her suggestion to heart and wrote my own daily devotional. Each day I took a line or two from one of the various spiritual authors from the last three centuries I was reading and wrote my own thoughts on the subject. I then looked for a scripture that illustrated the truth that had been revealed to me. What follows is the result.

Prayer for Truth - Don Miguel Ruiz

     Today, Creator, I ask you to open my eyes and open my heart so that I can recover the truth about my life.  Help me to resist the temptation to believe the lies that repress the expression of my life and my love.  Give me the strength to resist the temptation to believe the lies of others that only create emotional poison in my heart.
     Today, Creator, let me see what is, not what I want to see.  Let me hear what is, not what I want to hear.  Help me to recover my awareness so that I can see you in everything I perceive with my eyes, with my ears, with all my senses.  Let me perceive with eyes of love so that I find you wherever I go and see you in everything you create.  Help me to see you in every cell of my body, in every emotion of my mind, in every person I meet.  Let me see you in the rain, in the flowers, in the water, in the fire, in the animals, and in the butterflies.  You are everywhere, and I am one with you.  Let me be aware of this truth.    
     Today, let everything I do and say be an expression of the beauty in my heart.  Let me be aware of the beauty and perfection in everything you create, so that I can live in eternal love with you.  Thank you, Creator, for the power to create a dream of heaven where everything is possible.  Beginning today, I will use the power of my love to create a masterpiece of art--my own life.  Amen
