Today, let the light of my soul burn through the shadows of my mind.
Today, let my soul shine through.
Rebel my heart against the insidiousness of fear.
Instead, let me pledge my loyalty to love.
Let me starve the forces of despair
And feed the seeds of hope that are always waiting quietly within me.
Help me to surrender my worries
and turn them over to trust.
Guide me to pay attention to the positive,
To the often invisible and taken-for-granted goodness in the world.
Let my senses be fully awake to the beauty and aliveness within and around me.
Let me act courageously for those who are powerless.
Let me be rock steady as the storms move through.
Let me be a lighthouse. A steady beacon, guiding others home to the safe ports within their hearts.
Make my words sweet and eloquent.
Make me magnetic.
Draw the best things
and to me.
Simply by being my truest self,
let me draw out the best in others.
To help their souls shine through, too.
Let us, together, create a reality
that matches the magnitude and radiance of our souls
and not the smallness of our minds.
even as doors close around us,
we open our hearts wide.
