365 Days of Prayer – Day 70

I don’t know if you are aware, as I have become aware, but there is an entire society underlying this one. I never paid attention to it before. But there is an entire group of thinkers and planners whose work often goes un-noticed because I couldn’t be bothered, but they contribute to the well being and ease of living that most of us take for granted. These capable men and women are agents of change. Sometimes their work is welcomed and sometimes it is not, and whether I like it or not, they are there in the shadows at government meeting, in towns, in municipalities, in planning boards and zoning boards and in judiciary posts. Sometimes they are responsible for assigning us more taxes; sometimes we luckily learn that we have fewer taxes. There are tax assessors, building inspectors, code enforcement officers and the people who drive snowplows. Maybe it’s your own neighbor. There are fire fighters and police officers calmly going about their jobs to the benefit of the rest of us. And there I am sneaking out into the pre-dawn hours to drive a school bus. Gee. I think I could make a novel out of this…

Creator, I am so, ever so grateful, that there is somebody willing to take on the jobs I don’t want to do! Amen.

Personally, my best answers to the question of life have come from my relationships, Nature, the Gurdjieff work, and a practical meditative/prayer life. Currently I am writing a book on my experiences with the Norns, Scandinavian goddesses of Destiny, and Hela, called Goddesses of the Nitty Gritty: Called to the Well of Being.
