We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a passage written by the English poet John Donne. His words remind us of how powerful and transformative our thoughts can be. Your body may be confined to a specific time and place, but your mind cannot be restrained -- it is free to roam and wonder. Take some time to listen to your inner voice today.

Meditation IV

"Our creatures are our thoughts, creatures that are born giants;
that reach from east to west, from earth to heaven;
that do not only bestride all the sea and land,
but span the sun and firmament at once;
my thoughts reach all, comprehend all.
Inexplicable mystery;
I their creator am in a close prison,
in a sick bed, any where,
and any one of my creatures, my thoughts,
is with the sun, and beyond the sun,
overtakes the sun, and overgoes the sun
in one pace, one step, everywhere."
