From The Melanin Man:

When you continue to learn and  unlearn each day through your life, you begin to understand the simplest of things on many different levels. Take for instance the well-known children’s bedtime prayer “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.” The spirit (my INNER SELF) spoke to me the other morning about this prayer, and this is what it revealed to me. Enjoy!

 

Original Prayer

“Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

If I should die before I wake

I pray the Lord my soul to take”

Bonus: “If I should live for other days

I pray Thee Lord to guide my ways”

 

MY INTERPRETATION

“Now I enter into the slumber of humanity

I ask that my soul is protected by the Source

If my human shell perishes before my soul awakes

I ask that my soul returns to the Source”

Bonus: “If I should live for more days

I ask the God in my thru my first (THIRD) eye to guide me.”

 

What do you think? Am I spot on or off just a bit??

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,
