It’s dandelion season where I live. Dandelions are intriguing, life-creating, with wonderful geometric designs.
And, they can help explain prayer. Yes, prayer.
Some people find it’s difficult to use the word ‘pray’ or ‘prayer’
without a sense of self-consciousness or discomfort.
The childhood game of blowing dandelion seeds into the air while making a wish as the breath is exhaled, then encouraging that wish to float freely is one way to explain … trusting the unknown … believing in God / Holy Other / Creator / By Whatever Name … accepting possibilities into life
Try taking a deep cleansing breath as you read this.
Slowly exhale and imagine yourself blowing dandelion seeds into the air.
As you do this, release your prayers/wishes … “Dandelion Wish-Prayers.”
Let’s “Dandelion Wish-Pray” today.
