The Sound of the Universe | John Philip Newell | Prayer

Milky Way and adromeda at SunToMoon utah_lane_1800We pause to listen

for the beat of your Presence in all things

pulsing in the light of distant galaxies

sounding in the depths of our soul

vibrating in each vein of earth’s body.

One Sound as vast as the universe

one universe filled with Presence

one Life within every life.
