As I stand before my altar, I go deeper into myself. I let go of the outer world and focus on the inner me connected to the universe. I have two candles lit, for both the God/Goddess of the universe. I’m not here to plea or ask but to give thanks for all I have and am and the manifestations to come. There is no need to be loud as there is no distance between us. We are connected. I whisper the words and let them float into the air and beyond. Like wisps of smoke from incense, they rise and the universe absorbs them. They are received and the gratitude is given back like an echo only it is the whisper from the universe that settles in my soul. It has been, it is, and it will be a glorious day.
