Prayer of the Heart
Let us keep our heart focussed.
Let me find kindness to negate resentment.
Let me show generosity to dissolve possessiveness.
Let me stand steady in the face of pain rather than live in fear.
Let me experience inquiry rather than reaction.
Let me be free from clinging and a narrow mind.
Let me express compassion rather than indifference.
So that my heart connects with the realities of others
So that I stay true to an undying principle
Of treating others as I wish to be treated.
So, awareness and respect pervade
My thoughts, words and actions.
To live in such a way brings dignity and nobility to life
And reveals true freedom of being.
