A Prayer for Today
That I might feel the joy of what is to be before I've even broken the silence of the day.
That I might inhale deeply and savour the inflation of my lungs with as much gratitude as I might savour a piece of chocolate cake, or a really really good cup of coffee.
That I might give thanks to the routine of this day ahead. For it means that I am blessed with folks who rely on me, duties that require my skill, attention, and care, and opportunities to share my Light in ways that both my mind, body, and Spirit have found a groove doing so.
That I might be conscious of the fresh and new within my day and within my routines. For each moment that unfolds is brand new, has never occurred in this time and space before, and is ripe with so many possible lessons and gifts.
That I might enter each interaction with a consciously open heart- to both give and accept that which feels best for me in each moment.
That I might be an open conduit of love and compassion: for myself first and foremost. This energy flows through my being effortlessly with the grace of the love from which I came.
That I might be open enough to flow with anything that does not align with how I first imagined my day to be. That I might accept that even the difficult has its reasons for being so. I recognize that I have the power to forever be shifting my perception, releasing my grasp on expectation, and surrendering to that which I cannot control.
