Hugh Prather and a morning ritual

Author, counselor, and minister, Hugh Prather, suggests in his chapter, "Walking Home" in Handbook for the Spirit that we look into our hearts and ask ourselves each morning, "How can I begin to experience my goodness? How can I make the effort today to be the kind of person I want to be?" I've found these questions to be very helpful in keeping me focused on what's most important to me and I try to ask them each morning as I greet the new day.
