-15_Prayer of Grateful Remembrance (June 19, 2000).htm Prayer of Grateful Remembrance June 19, 2000 Now, having lived over 60 years, I look back on a lifetime of experiences and realize that the highest peaks of life and love have been the result of the Grace of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Conscious on occasion, yet most often unaware, I see now in retrospect even with my limited inner understanding, how They have guided and protected this soul, not only during the nearly 40 years that I have known Their boundless love and incomparable grace, but I see glimpses of Their guidance even from childhood. Was not the preparation and inculcation of the love of flowers a particular blessing

Prayer Surgery Day-Sept. 28, 1998 9:50 a.m. These thousand thoughts that assail the mind and torment the soul - let them not enter, O Lord, for the temple must be kept open and clean for Thee alone to descend.

Let me not, Lord, have thoughts for myself, but be concentrated in Thee and offer my prayers for Mary Helen. 9:55 a.m. When I was a young boy I served as an acolyte in the 5:00 a.m. mass at the local Catholic church.

-13_Prayer of Gratitude and Surrender (June 10, 2000).htm Prayer of Gratitude and Surrender June 10, 2000 Increase O Mother my limited consciousness and my concentration. Do not allow my thoughts to turn away from Thee or wander when I try to focus solely on Thee. I pray for a mind and will and body turned exclusively towards Thee, focused singly on the work of transformation through ultimate surrender. Mother there are not words to thank Thee for this lifetime of blessings lavished on my soul by Sri Aurobindo and Thee. My gratitude can only truly be shown not in words or emotional fervour but by growing towards Thee, into Thy likeness, to mould me according to Thy Will.

Prayer of July 28, 2001 Divine Mother, I realize more each day how great a gift I have been given to have been able to share these thirty years with Mary Helen and grow towards Thee at her side. Her gentle care and quietness, her refinement and her need for order and conscious organization, her aesthetic taste and unostentatious devotion are only a few of the many blessings she daily sheds upon my soul. This night, on the eve of my 63rd birthday, I kneel before Thee in gratitude, offer a prayer for the rapid progress of her soul, for illumined days and radiant nights enfolded in Thy care. I thank Thee for all Thy Grace descending, the ever-living memo

Prayer of June 4, 2004 Divine Mother, I am ready. Take everything from me, all resistance to the Light, all doubt of fitness for the yoga, all feelings of inadequacy and inability, all intolerance of others and myself. Eradicate all desire, all sense of separateness, obliterate the tablets of the past, expunge all clinging sorrow and fix these eyes on the future which is golden, which is Thee. With thy force annihilate the ego, reduce all impatience and anger to dust, permit me to see all beings as thy children and eliminate all sense of the individual worker. Whether by fashioning in the forge if this nature is unyielding or by gentle moulding of thy

8:57 a.m. Lord, help me to develop a more consistent call, in waking and in sleep, in thought and dreams, to speak Thy name in silence and aloud, to chant my hymns of thankfulness with a heart open and supple enough to allow Thy Grace to enter. May I always be grateful for the gift of Mary Helen and the divine light I have felt behind those blue and lucent eyes.

Prayer of October 23, 1967 My dearest Lord, Thou for whom I would aspire to give all I am or ever in this vast evolution shall be, help me to become aware of Thee with every breath and in every cell of my body. I find so much narrowness in this being. To be fully consecrated – that certainly is the goal for me. To know Thy will at each moment, to listen only to Thy voice and to feel Thy hand moulding me into an instrument, a vehicle, an expression of Thee. O Divine Mother, Thou who art the reason I breathe, let me grow in awareness of Thee. May my every breathe sound the mantra of Thy name. Into the East West Cultural Cente
