May we recognize the light in the darkness.

May we know and befriend our own shadow.

May we be amused, with relief, at the grace allotted to us for our imperfections.

May we draw wisdom from the ancestors.

May we draw courage from those yet to be born.

May we move beyond the harshness of duality to the fullness and wholeness of all existence.

May we have the courage to live into the fullness of our own humanity.

May we be brave enough to not be silent when that fullness is denied to others.

May we seek to live our lives in service to our messy coexistence.

May we be held in blessing as we trace our fears back to love.
