Ancestors and Spirits of the Land
Artist of the Cosmos
Source of all that is
Creator of Music, Beauty, Comfort, and Inspiration
Author of Clarity, Courage, Discernment and Illumination
Mother of all things alive, pulsing with life
Father of all things illuminated with consciousness and presence
Help us to be here now
as we engage our hearts, minds, bodies, souls and spirits
in a holy prayer for global peace.
Awaken us to the light and shadow in each moment
so that we might learn to see our reflection in everything
and everyone we behold
Help us to become aware of the beauty and the horror
that each of us are capable of
So that we can learn to live with humility, gratitude, grace, and love.
May we cultivate a true understanding of life’s impermanence,
so that we will remember what matters most -
to live our lives with a respect and reverence for ourselves
and for all of life.
May we soften around the parts of ourselves that cling to certainty, righteousness, and dogmas that divide us.
Help us to strengthen our inner resilience –
So that we can see the loss and challenge of these times
As birth pains towards a new emergence of a cooperative, sustainable, just and fulfilling human presence on the earth.
May we hospice the legacies of separation and greed -
Let us use these forces so that we might transform them
into a world of unity and mutual respect.
May we live in right relationship to the Great Mystery -
So that we can embrace our essential nature :
Magnificent, Brilliant, Compassionate, and Kind
Inclusive, Tolerant, Respectful, and Creative.
We all know - in our heart of hearts -
That the way of all things Good leads to peace.
May there be peace in the cosmos.
May there be peace on earth.
May there be peace in our hearts.
May there be peace.
