Prayers: “There Is Room For You Here

If God is your strength and companion
and prayer the means of centering your thoughts,
There is room for you here.
If the teachings of the Buddha give you
clarity and calm in the midst of human striving,
There is room for you here
If Gaia’s seasonal rhythms lead you best
through the myriad steps of Life’s great dance.
There is room for you here.
If the still mysterious capacity and power of the Mind,
stirs your imagination and quickens your pulse,
There is room for you here.
Rest now, beside that spring, wherever it is for you
And let your attention go to the small places inside
or out in the great wide world—
places or people in need of healing
or for which your heart is filled with thanksgiving,
And in that spirit, let us be silent together for a time.
