a prayer


Essence of life and love,

            manifesting in all of creation;

May we hold all creation as sacred,

            and be wise stewards of all its gifts.

May we live in harmony;

            being kind, compassionate and just.

May we seek to value each experience from another’s point of view.

May we be a blessing to those around us.

May we be awe inspired and re-membered in love. 

May it be so with every one of us.
