Daily Thoughts and Prayers

 

April 17th

 

 

Salient Thought for the Day

 

      Through the practice of silence we gain knowledge of our spiritual nature and bring our outer nature into harmony with it.


Lines to Memorize

   

      Hush! This is the hour of silence

      When soul seeks its refreshment.

      Turbulent mind, thou art ever restive for sport and gain;

      Thou art ever mad for new sensation and art in feverish plight.

      Wouldst thou rob me of my true happiness?

      Be still, that thou mayest not miss this new and blessed joy.

 

Lesson

   

      Stillness is not negative, it is not lack of life; it is control of life. Silent power is always constructive. The practice of silence helps us gain a glimpse of our inherent nature. That is why wise men spend so much time in silence. Unless we have quietness of mind, unless we have learned to control our restless thought, we cannot remain unmoved in all the experiences of life.

 

Prayer             

      

      O Thou Supreme One, in this hour of silence I lift my prayer to Thee.

      Sanctify me by Thy touch That I may feel a nearness that destroys all doubt and heaviness.

      May I rest in Thy Divine Presence and protection

      And open my heart, my thought and feeling, to Thy Divine inspiration.
