May my Life be a Prayer

March 30, 2010 By: celedra Category: About Us, Living with Intention

May my Life be a Prayer – a year ago in June, during my birthday,  I prayed this prayer.

I had decided to read Stephen Levine’s wonderful book, A Year to Live.  After 15 years of hospice work and some of the most profoundly moving weekend workshops of my life with Stephen and Ondrea, I am well aware of the very impermanent nature of this lifetime.

What is my highest purpose?  How can I serve?

The answer came – it was to create a central resource for sacred living.  A place to come for solace, respite, guidance, inspiration, community.  I love the Huffington Post and could see this blog with the double bar of topics filled with video, sacred art, conscious relationships, parenting, teachings, yoga.  A sanctuary to rest in, a community to learn from and to share with.

Today it is a bit over 9 months later.  We have given birth.  I am in awe, again, of the magic and mystery of creation.  I am so blessed to have Matsya, a treasure beyond words,  as co-creator on this blessed journey.  We thank all of you who so enthusiastically support and value this vision and bless all of us on this sacred path of life.  May our lives be a prayer!

Stephen & Ondrea Levine – Deep Gratitude

Stephen & Ondrea Levine

During my almost 15 years of hospice work, it was always Stephen and Ondrea Levine that provided meaning to a sometimes overwhelming sense of loss and suffering. His books, A Gradual Awakening and Who Dies, became like my bible, a constant well of words that filled my soul and helped me be present and accepting of whatever arose.

Their workshops broke our hearts open with compassion and filled us with infinite light and love. In closing, we would do a Sufi dance, moving from person to person, looking deeply into their eyes, sending and receiving love into our hearts.  The dance was a tribute to one of my favorite phrases of his “The mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.” Bless them both for their unique and devoted contribution.
