A Prayer for Humanity

I Pray ...

I pray awareness floods our being, not just as we pray today but as a new way forward. I pray we find a new transformational literacy and coherence for a new future.

I sing a prayer for humanity that we may see ourselves clearly with curiosity, compassion and courage, for we must evolve individually if we are to evolve collectively.

I pray for those less fortunate, for there are many whose home is not a safe place who are vulnerable at this time.

To those of you I say – may you find strength, courage and inner wisdom. May you know that you are seen.

I pray we learn what it means to really love ourselves because only then will we learn to love our neighbour and live in harmony.

I pray that although in this moment many are living in a profound period of disruption, accompanied with pain and grief, that they are not blind to the gift. That gift is the glimpse of what is possible, what is important to us. The possibility of awakening.

I pray that the potential to create a new story to reimagine, reshape and reseed takes flight.

I pray that despite the grief, fear and uncertainty about the future that we find the integrity to face the challenges now through honest inquiry, meditation and community.

I sing a prayer for my humankind to cherish these times. To pray out loud and inwards … to sing a song of grace to mother earth, to find more empathy and loving-kindness, to dream new dreams for new times. To find joy in the simplest things.

I pray that through kindness, compassion and cooperation we come to a place within ourselves of peace, silence and deep understanding.

And while the Earth breathes anew, may we also take a fresh breath and a new step forward to building a new consciousness, starting with ourselves.

I pray that a smile is born on the lips of all who recognise the great opportunity this time affords us.

Amen and Amen to this remarkable prayer. I pray that mankind sees the need to take immediate action as the potential to create that world we earnestly yearn for lies within us all.

Amen to the last line. A deep inner smile of knowing and anticipation is inside my heart, for I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is a time of quickening to enable us to move out of suffering and into the light.

Feel Your Body
Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes.
