Everyone needs a place to start

This inspired piece is one of the ways I like to start my day. When I do, things go ever so much more smoothly.

"Oh Great Light, who opens the day,
open our eyes to the beauty of your creation.

Open our hearts to the supreme love you have for us
and the compassionate love we may shower upon ourselves and those around us.

Open our ears to hear your guidance as we walk through each moment.

Open our roads that we may move smoothly forward on the path you have set for us.

Open our minds to clarity and understanding, that we may see and know the purpose of our being, and journey with confidence and grace through the triumphs and trials of our life."
