May we be grateful for everything good.Donna Goddard
Good IS everything.
May we remember that God is the only Love.
May our eyes radiate nonconditional benevolence.
May our awareness be of spiritual perfection.

May we know the loveliness of love.
May the Divine presence fill our consciousness.
May we feel the magnificent capacity of Life.

May we feel the immensity of Divinity.

May it sustain us.
It IS us.

We knew it was there
and knew it was dangerous
because, you know,
it left bodies in the dirt.
We all stayed in –
