This Day

20 Jul

When I speak may the sound
of my words convey calming
grace and every word be true.

When I greet strangers or
friends may I do so without
hypocrisy, prejudice or arrogant
judgement.

May I consider that I breathe
because the miracle machine of
my body still functions.  I occupy
it for a short time.

May I feel the pain, share the
laughter, contribute something
worthwhile, honor gratitude
in my infinitesimal spot in
the world.

When I fall into my bed tonight,
may the stars twinkle a little
brighter, and sleep come as a
comforting friend because I have
lived this day with gratitude, not
grandeur.

And may my dreams carry me to
the Source of my thoughts and
wishes.  Today will have been
one beautiful step in the
journey.
