My new friend, Alden Solovy, who is currently wandering around Israel seeking holiness and direction, wrote another meaningful meditation. In an existence in which each moment of each day is suffused with holiness, his prayer reminds us that we need only to open ourselves to sense this holiness.
Read this prayer now, then print it out. Carry it around with you and try to read it once each day for a week. Notice how this affects your day. I would love to hear about it!

There’s still time to live this day with intention,
To set aside petty thoughts and small tasks,
To see myself with dignity and grace.
There’s still time to live this day with my hands and my heart,
To walk with strength
To act with courage,
To offer kindness,
To build and to sustain,
To embrace and to bless.
G-d of forgiveness,
Thank You for the gift of hope
That You’ve planted in every moment,
The gift of renewal that You’ve given to every hour,
So that we may find the way
To redeem our days with holiness.
