Planning v Praying
Prayer's positive potential is not as substitute for planning.
Prayer might be a prelude to planning,
and might be an appropriate postlude
to fully implemented plans,
whether psalm of gratitude
or requiem of remorse
depending on healthy and pathological outcomes.
some gratitude and humble remorse,
demonstrating we have learned something
from our nondual co-arising trial and error
and yet continue improving
our further therapeutic refinements.
But, whether my life plans are what happened
while Earth continuously revolved in other distressing directions,
or I continue learning to plan somewhat more cooperatively
and inductively and deductively co-arising
togetherly more than separately,
prayer is the active planner's co-redemptive bookend,
Alpha and Omega double-binding points of reorientation,
not my personal How to Save the World book,
much less exegetically seminal scripture.
Prayer is my yeasty bread and liturgical garnish,
but not the red meat
of ego/ecologically balanced regenerative planning.
