Awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity
of your own presence.

Have joy and peace
in the temple of your senses.

Receive encouragement
when new frontiers beckon.

Respond to the call of your gift
and the courage to follow its path,

Let the flame of anger free you of all falsity.

May warmth of heart
keep your presence aflame.

May anxiety never linger about you.

May your outer dignity mirror
an inner dignity of soul.

Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles
that seek no attention.

Be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.

May you experience each day as a sacred gift
woven around the heart of wonder.
