yes, a blatant plug, up to a point. however, this has helped me in so many ways. there have been new members here that i would like to share this with. please, do not respond unless you feel called to do so. this is the vision given to me that i authored and i want no recognition, however, i hope it brings some degree of peace to those i share my journey with here.

Quote:

The core principles are expressed in the “Ecology of Grace”, which states:

- All of creation is related to its every constituent part
- There exists a fundamental orientation of all creation toward Holy Mystery
- There exists the potential freedom to embrace and actualize the gift of grace given unto all of creation
- A solitary act does not partake of the Kingdom

The meditations derived are:

- It is gift, and gift will find its way
- I inherit through my choice. I build through my affirmation. It is through my freedom that I nurture, or fade into autonomy
- Lord, you are my source, not my object. Like you, I embrace the kingdom our Father has given us to manifest
- It was not given to life to broker the Kingdom, but to manifest it
- I was not given to serve life, but to embrace it

The prayers derived are:

Holy Spirit,
Guide my mind
As I acknowledge
All that I am grateful for
That but for your will
Could not occur
Holy spirit,
Guide my heart
As I acknowledge my weaknesses
That but for your strength
I could not overcome
Holy spirit,
Guide my soul
As I acknowledge
What I must reconcile
That but for your grace freely given
Could not occur
Holy Spirit,
Guide my life
As you’ve always done
So I may continue to recognize
What you love
That I might love as well
So be it


- It is gift, and gift will find its way
- I inherit through my choice. I build through my affirmation. It is through my freedom that I nurture, or fade into autonomy
- Lord, you are my source, not my object. Like you, I embrace the kingdom our Father has given us to manifest
- It was not given to life to broker the Kingdom, but to manifest it
- I was not given to serve life, but to embrace it


Of the earth
And of my hands
This, which is holy
That I might find strength
To listen
That I might learn
To hear
That I might remember
To reach
That I might yet stand

That I might stand
To embrace
The Law
Of my Surrender
As I Serve
On my Path
All of the Earth
So be it


- It is gift, and gift will find its way
- I inherit through my choice. I build through my affirmation. It is through my freedom that I nurture, or fade into autonomy
- Lord, you are my source, not my object. Like you, I embrace the kingdom our Father has given us to manifest
- It was not given to life to broker the Kingdom, but to manifest it
- I was not given to serve life, but to embrace it


Behold, earth
And blessed creation
That which is greater
Than the breath of one
Is that which is shared

There is trembling
As truth is embraced
That one is nothing
Without all else

Therefore, I stand
That I might manifest
On earth
As it is in heaven
So be it


The prayers, meditations, ecology of grace principles, and the vision of Bridgebuilders are the culmination of all I have I have sought to embrace and articulate in my life. The Kingdom of God, is not the Kingdom of Christ (the Church), the Kingdom of God’s the acceptance of the relatedness of all creation, acknowledgement of its orientation, and the embrace of freedom that one can nurture the Kingdom to its eventual creation-wide communion with Holy Mystery, or to fade into autonomy.
