The first time I had the pleasure of spending some time with Marianne Williamson she shared this powerful prayer from the Course in Miracles with me.
“Where would you have me go?
What would you have me do?
What would you have me say, and to whom?”
When you ask this of your higher self/God/Universe (whatever you feel comfortable calling the energy that holds everything together) it instantly takes the focus away from any fleeting egotistical desires/wishes. If you can, go to a quiet place right now and try it out with the faith that these questions will be harmoniously answered throughout your day today.
