A prayer:


Where I am, 

You are. 

What I feel, 

You feel. 

What I think, 

You think. 

So transparent is my unity with you

Are one eye and one seeing 

And one knowing and one loving. 

In awe I confess: 

That what I do, 

You do. 

Assist me this day to be worthy 

Of you. 


 - John McQuiston II in A Prayer Book for the 21st Century

The Parable of the Growing Seed 

Jesus also said, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come. 

Mark 4: 26 NRSV

One knows God, not so much through reason, nor even through the heart, but through one’s feeling of complete dependence on Him, akin to the feeling experienced by an unweaned child in the arms of its mother.  It does not know who holds it, warms it, feeds it; but it knows that there is this someone; and more than merely knows, — it loves that being. 

 - Leo Tolstoy
