By grace I mean . . .


“… I want, in fact-
-to borrow from the language of the saints-
-to live “in grace” as much of the time as possible.
I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense.

By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual,
which can be translated into outward harmony.
I am seeking perhaps what Socrates asked for
in the prayer from the Phaedrus when he said,
“May the outward and inward man be one.”
I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace
from which I could function and give
as I was meant to in the eye of God.”
