We are at the end of our greatest holiday season. Thanksgiving and Christmas have gone away. The time for New Years celebrations has come.
Everyone seems to put on a Happy Face. They say they are happy and thankful for what they have. At the same time our hospitals fill up with cases of anxiety and depression. Violence and rage are seen every day.
This year many are experiencing extreme stress. Some are out of work and are not able to pay their rent. Some don't have the money to put food on their table. Many business owners are afraid they will not make enough to keep their businesses going.
More than ever there is a need for balance and harmony in everyone's life. There is a need for love, compassion, and understanding.
Let us open our hearts and minds. Let us activate the Spirit of Healing and Love.
How ever you pray – bowing your head – on your knees – or just sitting quietly, let us enter into a state of harmony and peace.
Let us be at peace within ourselves. Let us be aware that the Spirit of God surrounds us now. Let us fill our hearts with love.
In this spirit, let us share and find strength and a common purpose.
Let us turn our hearts and minds toward one another seeking to bring into our circle of concern all who need our love and support – those who are ill – those who are in pain either in body or in spirit – those who are lonely – and those who are in need.
You know who comes to your mind as needing support at this time. Give them your full attention for a moment.
Silently send a beam of healing and love to that person.
As you believe – so let it be.
Your spirit will be felt by that person's spirit. Have no doubt of this.
We are part of a web of life that makes us one with all humanity – one with the universe.
Through meditation and prayer we can have an affect on our world.
Let us be grateful for the miracle of life and the spirit we share.
Let us be thankful for the ability to love and to care.
Let us be thankful for our community.
Let us work and use our abilities to create harmony and peace.
Remember always you are a child of the One. You are never alone. Your thoughts and words have great power. The Spirit will respond in accord with your deepest desires.
Let me close with a short prayer.
Let us not leave the path that is before us. Let no darkness dwell in us. May we obtain completeness. May we reach out to all with love. We ask for the Spirit to guide us – help us to find those who are lost. Father may your Spirit fill us. Let us be filled with wisdom, energy, and life. Let the Spirit shine within like the sun. Let all awaken to their status as your children. May we learn to live in harmony and peace. May love fill and guide our thoughts, words, and deeds. Within us, let us know the Holy Law. May we live in love; with knowledge and wisdom.
Let this humble prayer be carried to all. Let us come together as One family.
We send these words with love.. Let us bring together all of humanity.
