What a peaceful night. I feel very serene. I should remind myself to tell Ali about this prayer in The Cloud of Unknowing. I was thinking about engraving it on my grave but it's a little too long for that. So I thought maybe he could read it on my funeral. It goes like this: 'God, to whom all hearts are open, and to whom all desires speak, and from whom no secrets are hidden, I beseech you to cleanse my heart’s purpose with the inexpressible gift of your grace, so that I may perfectly love you and worthily praise you. Amen.' Maybe I have him engrave on my grave: "He too was concerned only with the Truth." But I'm not going to die anytime soon. I have a destiny to fulfill. So no need to think about these things too much. It happens when it is supposed to happen and what is supposed to be written will be written.
