A prayer for today
“Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening” Mahatma Gandhi
I’m a writer. I have always been a writer. From time to time in this blog, you will find posts on spirituality, mostly from my book “Lessons of Life“. You will also find some poetry occasionally, and even some Australiana stories! All these have been inspired by events or situations in my life from where I have taken a lesson and been inspired by what happened. There will also be many more regular posts on self development, lessons I have learned and taught since I began in the 1990’s, some taken from The Executive Mastermind, some developed for specific purposes or clients.
My first books came out 2 decades ago; the verse below is probably the single page of which I am most proud. It is from the book “Lessons of Life“, a collection of spiritual stories that, when I had a question, I would let fall open and read my answer from the page. It was uncanny how inspirational and accurate it was.
This was a period early in my time of self development and personal growth, when I was still struggling with some of the concepts of spirituality and personal growth that I now know are integrated into my life, things I have been learning, and more importantly, teaching, for the last two decades. I wrote this verse back then, and in those days, I had a diary, a large folder from which I worked and kept my business appointments from.
This verse was in that folder and I read it aloud to myself, night and morning. I’m glad I did. It’s who I am now.

#A prayer for today: A prayer for every day!
Today, My Perfect Day
A day that I could begin by being of service to another, to start their day also with inspiration and love.
A day when I could plan and begin projects – dreams that could take all of my tomorrows to complete.
A day I would live as though it was my last, as though there would be no tomorrow.
A day when I would play the games I play to the limit,
To laugh as hard as I can,
To love as passionately as I am able,
