I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

HOW TO PRAY FOR THE END OF LGBT TEEN SUICIDE









We're shocked and sad and angry every
time the news breaks about another tragedy. We share the news on Facebook. We hold
candlelight memorials. We speak out against bullying. We donate to The Trevor Projecthttp://www.previewshots.com/images/v1.3/t.gif.





Now, let's also focus our SPIRITUAL POWER on ending this
suffering.


Each of us who believes in the Power
of Prayer (or The Secrethttp://www.previewshots.com/images/v1.3/t.gifcreative

now dedicate some portion of our practice to LGBT young people.





What does this mean?





We live in a creative universe. What
we think about creates our individual experience, but those of us who believe
in prayer also believe that what we pray about effects the world.





DO NOT PRAY ABOUT LGBT
TEEN SUICIDE.


Prayer and similar practices are
creative - you get more of what you put energy toward. "Whatsoever you ask
in my Name, that will I do." (John 14:13)





So when you do your spiritual work
around this issue, do not pray from your grief, your anger, your compassion. Do
not pray about the tragedy. Do not pray for this epidemic to stop.
These would be negative prayers.





Instead, use positive prayer.





Pray for peace and healing and
protection and Light and angels and Love to surround and lift up LGBT youth.





See it in your mind while you
practice.





Imagine every LGBT teen laughing,
living in joy, receiving love and support from all directions.





If you can't wipe the memory of these
tragedies from your spiritual practice: close your eyes; consciously witness
the lost child's experience of bullying or loneliness - like a movie; and then,
do it again, but make different choices. That is, imagine what the scenerio
would have been if everything had gone right - if they'd found the
strength, known what to say, who to tell, where to turn, how to get through it.
Focus on this new sequence, and send it out into the universe as the new story
of How Things Go.





And then, BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.





But we have to do it together.





And we have to do it NOW!




SAVE THE GAYS...






¡SAVE THE GAYS & WE MIGHT SAVE THE WORLD¡
