A Prayer For You

Climb the mountain and hear its wisdom upon the wind
Spirits peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees
The winds will blow their own freshness into you
Storms will give their energy, Moon her light, Wolf his wisdom
Your cares and worries will drop off like autumn leaves

Strive to make yourself like water, both gentle and strong
Make yourself gentle enough to follow the natural paths of the world
And yet strong enough to rise up and reshape the world around you

In your journey you search for answers and wisdom
Yet the best things in life are already nearest to you
Spirits breath in your nostrils, sunlight in your eyes, flowers at your feet,
The duties at your hand, and the path of rightness laying just before you.

Do not grasp at the stars; take life’s plain, common work as it comes,
Bid your children to accept and walk with Nature
Let them see the beautiful blending and communions of death and life
Teach them of the joyous inseparable unity
To learn in woods and meadows, plains, mountains, and streams
Discovering the blessed path we walk

And help them to learn that death is not the end perceived,
But as beautiful as life and as unending as creation
Spirit provides the three things we crave most
Happiness, freedom, and peace of mind
Easily attained by simply giving them to someone else
