For a couple of weeks now I’ve been toying with an idea or, perhaps more accurately an idea has been toying with me.
I have learned to pay attention – oh not always right away – to those ideas that nag and niggle and won’t go away. It’s one of the ways I take care of my mental health!
I mentioned the idea to a couple of friends who said “do it” and still I let the idea sit. It’s a simple idea, nor particularly radical and yet it felt a bit uncomfortable to move forward with partly because I wasn’t sure of the forum.
This morning I read an article by Charles Eisenstein entitled Big Problems Need Small Solutions and I knew that this idea is my small solution!
I committed to blogging each day for one year and now I’ll be extending that for a year beginning today but not here. Not on this blog. I’m moving over to a blog I’m calling Daily Focus where I will be posting, each day, a prayer, a mantra, a meditation – a focus – for us to say, chant, sing, read in silence, read aloud – whatever suits. It’s my way of gathering us together, for a daily moment of prayer.
My small solution is encouraging people to take a moment to pray each day. However prayer looks to you, I’m cool with. It’s a uniting of our hearts, a raising up of our voices, a sending out of love, of hope, and a registering of our desire for healing, for change, for grace to sweep over our world.
If you’d like to join in, please connect to the new blog here (I’ve posted my prayer Gracias to get the blog started) and yes, you’ll need to subscribe i.e. “Follow” that blog if you want to be a part of this new, this Daily Focus. As my beloved friend Charlie used to say: “it’s an invitation, not an obligation”.
This blog here, will remain dormant for now. Thank you to each of you who have been part of Crowing Crone’s journey. She’s moving on, at least for twelve months. She hopes you’ll come along.
