Having developed my body, taken charge of my thoughts, and risen above the struggle of life, I am in command. My Will is my power, my Shield is positive thought. I hold steady against that which opposes me. My target is God-realization, not revenge.
I am filled with Light. I am burning with the fire of inspiration. I am strong enough now to overcome anger by corrective action. I am strong enough now to overcome confusion by illuminating my mind. I am strong enough now to be kind even to those who do not like me. I am strong enough now to forgive. I am powerful. I allow myself to be moved by a greater force.
In groups, in front of others, is never the time to criticize another, but to praise them. In this way, all are lifted up. As we share that which we like and appreciate about each other, our bowls are filled with grace. Let us be thankful for all we have been given as human beings. Let us share our bounty. Let us share our blessings.
My trade may seem humble to many, but every movement of my hand corrects a wrong. I look like your ordinary worker but I am learning a higher trade. I am in the school of sacred studies, Mother Earth my professor, Father Sun my guide.
With love, I entice the inner person into relationship with the outer world. I attract what I wish to become and I radiate what I am. Beauty surrounds me.
Grandmothers, Grandfathers, open your ways to me. I will practice and perfect them in my peaceful place within. Speak to my heart, my soul. Let seeker and wisdom be one. All thanks be to you who have walked before me.
