I desire to make connections
to sustain a sense of the sacred
to be graceful and gracious
to listen to the silences between the words
to be mindful of the beauty in each moment
to give thanks for the beauties
of tree and flower,
birdsong and laughter,
friendship and fellowship.
Great Mystery at the heart of all that is,
may I be constantly aware of the wonder and joy
of being awake, alive and aware
and treasure each moment
whatever it brings
and when I fail,
as often happens,
let me not be too hard on myself,
but gently reconnect with the heart of the mystery
sinking gratefully into the soft darkness,
the singing silence.
For each moment we can begin again.
It is never too late.
The time is always now.
