Prayer 180

The prayer series

Jesus,

Do you think I should practice Tai Chi and become a Tai Chi master?

Yes, you know all my dreams.

When I was child, I often dreamed I was a wanderer,
traveling everywhere with wind and cloud,
enjoying the little things in life,
doing whatever I feel right
(protecting people with my martial arts,
healing people by miracles,
standing up for the rights of the weak…)
and gazing at the single bright moon all night.

Beautiful dreams.

And dreams are born to live.
Live our dreams.

Do you think I should practice Tai Chi and become a Tai Chi master?
If I do, would you like to do with me?
I know you are a Tai Chi master, would you like to teach me?

I love you, Jesus.

Amen.
