From Howard Thurman, today, this reminder to maintain awareness, to keep the nous open.
I will lift up mine eyes. I will lift up mine eyes in life, that I may read the guideposts along my way and not miss the important turning in the road. I will lift up mine eyes to love, that I may not close the door of my heart to the knocking hand, the tender cry, the anxious reach. I will lift up mine eyes to God, that I may meet His spirit not only in the high place, the great moment, the penetrating call, but also in the byways, the little duties the stinging irritations and the sad and bottomless renunciations. And for me this is enough.
