KissI’m tired of this playing hide-and-seek by moonlight. I’m too old for games. Can’t you see that this is serious? I don’t want to chase after you, listening to you giggle. I want you to sit still and be close to me, hold my hand and talk to me. Why is that too much to ask?

You let Francis catch you. I’m not even sure if he chased you at all. Seems to me he just turned a corner one day and there you were.

Gadai got hold of you when he was just a boy. And don’t tell me how hard it was for him all those years, how he cried for you for so many days. We both know he had his reasons for all of that.

And what about Siddartha? He didn’t even look for you, went the opposite direction, but when he plopped down under that tree, you were waiting for him. How is that fair?

I can go on and on, you know.

Nimai just went around causing trouble. Then along you came and said, “Here. Sing this.” Next thing you know, he’s a saint.

Now Paul, I grant that you weren’t so friendly about it. But you gave yourself to him nonetheless, and how did he earn it? I ask you!

See, there are plenty of¬†precedents. You did it for them, now I think it’s my turn. Sit down here, and do for me what you did for them. Give yourself to me. Let me melt into you. That’s what I call freedom.

And while you’re at it, go ahead and give it to everyone else. They’re really decent people. I think they deserve it.

I love you. Even if you are a tease.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

st francisAll you saints throughout the ages,

All buddhas and bodhisattvas,

All avatars and holy sages,

You who have seen the face of God,

You who have attained the highest truth,

You who have graced the world with your divine presence among us,

Stay through the countless ages

And pray for us all,

Work tirelessly for our liberation from ignorance,

Save us from endless lives of suffering,

Hear us from the depths of despair

And answer us from the throne of bliss.

Our hearts belong to you always.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

May I have the desire to return to this world countless times if I can in any way be of service to others.

May a spring of compassion and loving-kindness well up in me.

May I experience the suffering of others, and may I understand its source, and know that my own suffering is no different.

May I strive constantly and diligently to attain to the highest wisdom that I may serve others with no thought for myself.

May I work without ego, without pride, without selfish desire, and with the attitude that my life is not my own, but a trust given me for a time.

May I constantly express sincere gratitude for my many blessings.

May all beings have this same wish, that suffering may be wiped out entirely.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

All in All

Village_banyanYou are the savior, the blessed son of God, sacrificed for the enlightenment of humankind.

You are the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate, the only one worthy of worship.

You are the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha, in whom all may take refuge, and who ferry the suffering across the ocean of the world.

You are the absolute Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss at the heart of every being; the Truth and the Reality.

You are the Holy One of ancient reverence, giver of the most just law and the inspiration of all peoples.

May I worship you wherever you are worshipped, praise you wherever you are praised, and adore you in every way that you are adored.

Let love for you bring all peoples together!

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
