My daughter has a beautiful voice, and wanted to offer up this prayer for the Boston Marathon bombing victims.
Makes me cry.
"Your destination in this life . . . the reality of who you ultimately are — who you can become through all your activated options — is referred to as your destiny.
The process of destiny has forever . . . the awakening however, will take place in a single given moment . . . welcome its arrival with all your heart and with every breath.
The journey of a human life is to travel from where you are — your fate — to who you are — your destiny.
Most people consciously or unconsciously distract themselves from living in either of these locations. They are neither where they are, or who they are, but a chaotic mixture of being distracted from the actualities of fate and doubting the possibilities of destiny.
All this while life — patiently and dutifully — waits on some parallel track . . . waiting for consciousness to awaken to at least one of these opportunities."
