Minute Meditations

Set an Intention

Presence exacts its coin —
our dearly held desire for self-preoccupation,
and the fantasy of control that presumes to preside over and above.
Mystics, artists, and prophets exemplify
this surrender into solidarity;
letting the self be moved by suffering and inspired by imagining.
True spiritual practice harbors this same intention —
the hand-over of self, that places us on a collision-course with grace
and draws us into a deepened state of readiness.
This holy intention
leads to whole, undivided attention,
where we come to know life in its raw fullness!

— from the book Wandering and Welcome: Meditations for Finding Peace
