Meditations: “Meditation for Beginning

Also appropriate as Meditations

Spirit of life and love:

In this season of beginning
    Some of us are hurried and harried.
    Some of us feel sorrowful and afraid.
    Some of us are not yet ready to step forward into the future.
May we minister to one another with wisdom,
Meeting our friends with open ears, open eyes, and open hearts.

In this season of beginning
    Some of us are celebrating triumphs and joys.
    Some of us feel whole and happy.
    Some of us are eager and excited, curious to see what happens next.
Let us each, as we are able, take part in one another’s happiness and enthusiasm.

Quiet spirit of life and love,
Bring us the grace to share wholly and faithfully in the lives of our friends and loved ones.
