Let us meet ourselves exactly where we are.
Let us salute ourselves,
and each other,
and the moment,
and everything that is.
Let us meditate on the words of the teacher:
“All forces have been steadily employ’d to complete and delight me,
Now on this spot I stand with my robust soul.”
Let us give thanks for everything that has brought us here.
Let us give thanks for this vessel.
Let us pray for an auspicious voyage.
And let us make an offering,
of our hearts,
of our souls,
of our bodies,
of our minds.
Let us approach with reverence, joy, and a lightness of heart.
Let us hold nothing back.
Let us make full contact.
Let the stories fall away,
Let the geometry speak for itself,
Let every impulse and thought be accepted and beautified,
Let the wall between God and not God be revealed for what it is.
For indeed we are this creation,
And the Ground of Being is the ground of our being,
And the processes of nature cannot be evil,
And nothing in this universe is alien to us.
And let us meditate on the moment,
And on the journey ahead,
And on where we will find ourselves tomorrow.
And let us dedicate this experience to the betterment of all beings.
Let there be peace.
Let there be light.
Let there be love.
Let it happen!
