Week # 3 – The Chipped CupDay # 3 – The Cleansed Cup
Sit with your cup in your hands.
Notice if your cup is stained or not.
Ask God to help you see the inner stain of yours.
Be still and wait for this awareness to arise.
Whether it is stained or not, take your cup to a sink.
Prayerfully wash it with soap and water.
As you do so, pray to be cleansed of what sullied your spirit.
Create a clean heart in me, O God.
Help me to be attentive to my inner world.
May I see the beauty and wonder of who I am.
May I also see whatever needs to be cleansed and purified.
Wash away my unloving aspects and draw me ever more closely to your love.
I will be aware of my need to spiritual cleansing when I shower, wash my hands, wash dishes, etc.
