The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation


Psalm 108:1-2 My heart is firmly fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and make melody. Wake up, my spirit; awake, lute and harp; I myself will waken the dawn.

I experienced a spiritual awakening in my late twenties. I was listening to the words of a very wise spiritual teacher, words that still ring true and have stayed with me for over a decade. Walking the spiritual path, he said, is the unfolding of our attempts to be faithful to our awakened hearts. Although we do not always see down the road, we are granted insight in the next step. Something rings true, something resonates, and our awakened heart confirms and validates what it is we need to do, whether to undertake a daily spiritual practice, initiate a major life change, or simply burst out in a song of thanksgiving.
