Hatch out the helplessness


Pray the prayer that is the essence of every ritual:

"God, I have no hope.
I am torn to shreds.
You are my first, my last, my only refuge."

Do not do daily prayers 
like a bird, pecking its head up and down.

Prayer is an egg.
Hatch out the total helplessness inside.

-- Rumi

This reminds me of the necklace I cherish, the same one which Diane Fuquay used to wear: the Alpha, Omega and Cross, superimposed into one image. Thank you for this lovely posting.
