A Prayer For Self

A beautiful prayer I had shared last night from Larry Yang's article in this week's Awakin reading.

May I be loving, open, and aware in this moment;
If I cannot be loving, open, and aware in this moment, may I be kind;
If I cannot be kind, may I be nonjudgmental;
If I cannot be nonjudgmental, may I not cause harm;
If I cannot not cause harm, may I cause the least harm possible.

I love how Larry has scaffolded these values in which he strives to live, yet understands that at times he may come up short in one, so he moves onto something more doable. And if that doesn't work, he works his way to something that he can do. As I read it over and over, it reinforced in me how imperfect I am. And yet, at each moment, I am exactly the being I am supposed to be.

    Absolutely beautiful--thank you so much for sharing this Bradley! I also love the idea that we are "inclining our hearts towards freedom"....we are all leaning towards this even in our imperfections.
