Daily Mentation Question for the Spiritual Progression Path

What activates me and gets my motor running?

Daily Quote for the Spiritual Progression Path

"I think the purpose of a piece of music is significant when it actually lives in somebody else. A composer puts down a code, and a performer can activate the code in somebody else. Once it lives in somebody else, it can live in others as well."

~Yo-Yo Ma

Daily Affirmation for the Spiritual Progression Path

My spirit is activated by Spirit.

Daily Prayer for the Spiritual Progression Path

For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.

Father, today's reading below reminds me of the Scripture, "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of Life; and man became a living soul." - Genesis 2:7. This scripture includes all the descriptive words of the spirit - breathed, nostrils, breath, life, and living. The soul is the part of us that always 'is' before Life, during Life and in the afterLife. The spirit must be activated in order for the soul to emotionally express and animate itself. When an individual passes away, the physical body is still there but it is no longer 'activated' and that body no longer animates or expresses, but the soul lives on. This is a powerful point to remember which separates the spirit from the soul.

The historical development of the word spirit, comes from the Latin word spiritus or spirare, which means breath, life, blow, breathe, puff, or vigor. The Greek translation is pneuma, which relates to the air or breath. And in medical terminology pneuma relates to the lungs and respiration. Hence, the word pneumonia. Life as we know it in its most observable form is demonstrated under the design of a breath of air and its termination is predictably the mark of death. Our spirit is not only invisible but impalpable as well. We can't simply point to it and say, "There it is!"

In todays's reading Jesus breathed on the disciples and said, "Receive ye the Holy Spirit," as He was commissioning them to do their job. It was in His breath, the Holy Spirit, that would activate their spirit to fulfill their mission. He said, "Receive" and they did. Father, breathe on me the Holy Spirit and activate my spirit to do what You commissioned me to do. Breathe on me. Breathe in me. Activate my soul to do Your will. And so I pray.

Breathe into me Holy Spirit
That all my thoughts may be Holy

Move in me Holy Spirit
That my work too may be Holy

Attract my heart Holy Spirit
That I may Love only what is Holy

Strengthen me Holy Spirit
That I may defend all that is Holy

Protect me Holy Spirit
That I always may be Holy

Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~

Daily Scripture for the Spiritual Progression Path

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

John 20:19-23

19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you."

20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

21 Jesus) said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, so I send you."

22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, "Receive ye the Holy Spirit.

23 Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained."

The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
