From this I am made, It is my source and sustenance. I am here on purpose through the will and love of God, a place where God shows up. The Divine breathes through me, beats my heart and renews me in each moment. I am inseparable from this one life, however life is showing up. All my needs are met within it. I am never alone, the Beloved is as close as my breath.
With this understanding I affirm this prayer for myself and all beings, all life. I accept that God is with me in all situations, conditions or circumstances. In the appearance of loss and grief I am never alone, the comfort and compassion of the Divine walks with me in all things. I willingly receive this good as my heart breaks open. I allow grief and longing its full expression, I let the tears flow. I let the waves move through me as my heart softens and embraces life more fully, with a deepening passion and tenderness. I honor endings and beginnings with renewed reverence. I recognize the natural cycle of life, the continuity and eternal nature of my and others' physical and spiritual beingness. I am generous and kind to myself. I give this process the time it needs. I am supported and comforted. I gently integrate this experience into my heart, body, mind and spirit. I am transformed and enriched by it. Love grows in me. It is well.
With a grateful heart I acknowlege this spiritual truth of my being, confidant it is already known and done in the heart and arms of the Divine.
And so it is.
