The secret of fortune is joy in our hands. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Writer's prompt by author, Susan Piver:
If you could picture your intuition as a person, what would he or she look like? If you sat down together for dinner, what is the first thing he or she would tell you?
If my intuition were a person, it would embody no distinct gender, so for the sake of completing this writing assignment, I will refer to my intuition as अर्धनारीश्वर.
अर्धनारीश्वर is a shape shifter; a creator and a destroyer, a dancer and a sword bearer—a unifier of all the dichotomies of the universe. With that said, र्धनारीश्वर would look a bit like the illustration to the left.
If I was having a meal with र्धनारीश्वर, the first thing
र्धनारीश्वर would say is a prayer. Because that's what someone as awesome as र्धनारीश्वर would do before consuming food. *grin* And I imagine the prayer would go something like this:
Thank you. As we follow the journey of this abuntant gift, we think lovingly on all the beings that brought this meal to our table. Let us honor them and ourselves by using the energy we receive to make a difference, bearing light and love into the world beyond this table, beyond this plate and beyond our bodies.
I'm participating in an online writing challenge called #Trust30. This blog was realized as a result of this initiative.
