May the Divine lead us all to Truth by whatever path suits us. May none make the mistake of thinking theirs is the only correct path. May all be free from egotism. May all develop pure love for their own Ideal.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

All-Compassionate One, be always the foremost thought in my mind.

In illness and health, longing and fulfillment, sadness and bliss,

Grant that I may see you at work and know that it is good.

 

You are the source of all things, the material of all worlds,

The soul of my soul, heart of my heart,

The air that I breathe and the reason that I am.

 

For all things should I praise You.

Every moment I should thank You.

With every action, grant that I may worship you.

 

How can I conceive of Your grandeur,

In whose mind has the universe its being?

Not by anyone can You truly be known.

 

Yet You dwell as the true self

In the heart of every being.

We are One beyond the mind’s understanding.

 

Praise and glory and worship to You

For this Grace, this miracle of Being!

The One God, the One Truth,

The All in All,

In every faith, in every heart, everywhere.

 

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

beeThere are days that I feel this way:

I don’t want to read books about you, or hear sermons about you, or talk about you with my peers.

I don’t want to look for you in buildings, or in sacred rivers, or in holy people, or in devotional works of art.

I can’t be bothered with philosophy or reason. I don’t care for poetry or song. You couldn’t force me to sit for prayer or meditation, to chant or count on beads.

Take your scriptures and your saints, your icons and your religious garb, your holiday festivals and your rites of passage — take them all in a great procession and drown them in your holy river. Let them sink out of sight and be gone forever,

because I love you too much to waste another moment not lost in the bliss of loving you.

because I want you, wholly and fully, in every beat of my heart, every breath, every thought.

because I am on fire with the madness of desire, the disease of clinging, the wounds of ignorance, and only your constant presence can extinguish the flame.

So make me to read the scriptures and hear the sermons, bathe in the rivers and offer the incense, wear the robes and worship in your houses,

but first fill me to bursting with love for you, and the endless sense of your presence,

for there is no holiness in all the holy things of world without your lending holiness to them.

Peace, peace, peace be unto.

May all miseries and shortcomings leave us forever!

May all beings be free to achieve their own enlightenment, and may they achieve it effortlessly and without struggle.

May all beings live in absolute peace and harmony.

May true, pure joy be the substance of all lives.

That love which the worldly have for worldly things, may I have that love for spiritual things.

That devotion which the obsessed have with the object of their obsession, may I be that devoted to the pursuit of Truth.

That longing the lover has for his beloved, may I have that longing for liberation from ignorance.

That joy the gluttonous derive from indulgence, may I derive that joy from renunciation of worldly things.

Praise be to the Supreme Truth!

Praise be to the Englightened Ones!

Praise be to the Ones Who Have Gone This Way!

Praise be all beings everywhere!

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
