I wrote a prayer-poem twelve years ago. Two years ago it came true. The title of this post, Tackled by Life, relates to this part of the prayer: “…quench my ego in Thy Will…”.
O sweet God,
Please take this Fire
Swirling in my breast!
Thy Breath into my Passion.
May I have no rest from any
Fervor I may feel nor any blaze
Divine; but, quench my ego in Thy
Love this love of mine…
My recent social networking led to a psychotherapist’s blog which led to being asked to write a guest post. It relates to this tackling life can do and how it quenches ego:
Beautiful post Alexander – your poem/preyer speaks volumes! Quenching the ego is extremely satisfying on the level of our spirit/soul as it is then that we can reach the higher essence of who we are.
what a beautiful poem! i’ll draw my readers’ attention to it!
