A Prayer For Spirit's Quest
Toward the perfection
of love, joy and beauty,
I embark upon the Quest
to the eternal spaces of my soul.
Within my heart the lights of heaven shine.
In harmony with Spirit, I become one
with what I truly believe I am.
My soul’s longing is the panoramic arc
by which I set my course.
Moving through the portal of attachment,
I enter a clear, expansive world.
As vistas of new possibilities expand,
I comfortably leave behind parts of my old self
which no longer serve me in this pilgrimage.
I bravely move toward the ever-vanishing
horizons of my soul’s awakening.
In this exploration to the most remote
place of my consciousness,
I courageously face the darker recesses in my soul
where renewal and rebirth takes place.
I experience forgiveness
for the fallibility of my human judgements;
I allow a finer self to step free
from my reclusive cell, which once entombed me.
In this fresh light, I faithfully honor all others.
Feeling the greatest joy to see them prosper,
and succeed in their hearts’ desires,
I lovingly give my full support
in cheering everyone to their fulfillment in life.
The universe, with its reciprocating energy,
gloriously bathes me in illuminating light.
Yet I move beyond my senses as I watch
the timeless, spaceless moment enrapture me
into a whole new state of knowingness.
Then, I am whisked beyond even this point
to a higher level of awareness.
And here, at the fulcrum of my consciousness,
where time and space merge into one vast whole,
I am in peace, at last, O God, I am at peace.
And So It Is!
