Letter to Divine Creator – monthly peace challenge

Posted for Kozo’s Monthly Peace Challenge over at Everyday Gurus.  Among a number of challenges is one to write a letter to God (however you name her) about peace.

Divine Creator, Mother, Father, Son as One:

I’m so grateful for the many gifts you’ve given me in this life.  Not only the prosperity and freedom and education, but also for the emotional struggles and the long-running health issues.  Working through these things has made me stronger, given me greater insight, caused me to be diligent at spiritual practices and has trained me to be a teacher.  Not just a teacher but a teacher who can understand many issues and many forms of resistance and trauma in others so that I can hold a space with compassion.

I long to do what you would have me do and to be who you want me to be.  I feel pulled to be an agent of peace.  I long to be a hollow bone through which divine love and compassion flow to everyone I meet.  I intend to be peace.  I know that each of us being peace within is the first step to peace on earth.

I am willing to let go of anything I still carry that stands in the way of holding the space of peace, compassion and love and you have my permission to remove anything in me that is not consistent with peace.  I AM you and that means that your love and compassion are mine as well and I can choose to remove all that doesn’t resonate with the Divine I AM.

Let my books and my movement classes and my teaching bring greater love and peace to my students.  If you have a different task for me than those, I will do as you ask.

BTW–instead of making me guess, once in a while could you just write a message in the steam in the bathroom mirror or in the snow on my patio?  A message in English that isn’t cryptic, but clear, in terms I understand…  I’m just sayin’

Thank you God

Thank you God

Thank you God

And so it is.

Love, Leigh

  1. I love this! Reminds me a lot of the prayers I offer up to God each day. Especially the last part:

    “BTW–instead of making me guess, once in a while could you just write a message in the steam in the bathroom mirror or in the snow on my patio? A message in English that isn’t cryptic, but clear, in terms I understand…”

    It’s hard to be patient, waiting for the message or the signs (and knowing that it is true discernment and not ego speaking.) It’s less of a burning bush and more like a whisper of wind on the skin.

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. “BTW–instead of making me guess, once in a while could you just write a message in the steam in the bathroom mirror or in the snow on my patio?” – oh yes! We could all do with one or two of those 🙂
    great letter, and thanks for the link!

  3. Leigh,
    This is so beautiful in its honesty and intention. I love letters and I love peace, so this letter made my heart flutter. I know that your struggles were meant to make you into the teacher that you are today–a teacher with wisdom, compassion, and empathy. I am grateful to have you stand next to me in our march towards peace. {{{hugs]}} kozo

    Although I am on a blogging break for July, I am still doing the Collective Prayer Sundays. I also joined Summer of Peace. You might want to check it out: summerofpeace.net

    • Thanks so much — I’m delighted to be participating in the movement for peace with you. And thanks for the heads up about Summer of Peace. I already shared on FB and will mention in a post. Hope you’re having beaucoup fun.
