Great Light, we greet you with praise this morning, wherever we are. We give thanks for the day you have made, for the life you have placed in us, for the time we are given to walk this world. Help us remember always that you work through us; we are your vessels. Open our eyes to the world and the people around us. Fill us with compassion for our neighbor. Help us resist doubt, suspicion, and selfish motivations.
Open our hearts to the thread of Love connecting us all, and keep our eyes turned toward the wonders you have made. Let us not be made weary by the world around us, but keep our spirits fixed on the Light which shines on all things, leads us through the times of shadow and fear, and makes us strong in spirit, and courageous of heart. Let us seek not understanding from the world, but let us seek to understand the world as it is, in all of its imperfection and ugliness, and teach us how we fit into this grand design, what our contribution will be to the sum of Light, so that we might soothe what hurt we can, feed who we can, and leave this place better than when we arrived.
Let us not despair in the face of hatred and greed, but rather take courage, for our we draw our strength from the Light and Love itself. We must be gently kind in world that is cruel. We must extend the hands of peace in a world that arms itself for war. We must question everything we see and hear, and seek always the deeper truth that underlies the fleeting and empty things we see in the works of men. Bless our paths as we move through the world, guard our way, and keep us always in the warmth of your light.
Amen and namaste.
