A Gratitude Prayer


Let Yourself Off the Hook.

It’s OK to unplug and disengage from the news of the day, from the horror, genocide, war, poverty and sickness that seem to be everywhere. We aren’t terrible people if we need to sit and look at the sky, silently counting clouds, feeling the wind as it shifts. We aren’t selfish or awful or lacking compassion if we take time to care for ourselves, as best we can.

What’s Good? What’s Right About the World?

No matter how bad we feel about what’s happening in the world, feeling bad will not make others feel good. Only by making small choices to focus on what’s good, what’s right, what’s important — moment by moment by moment — can we ever hope to change things. Only that will foster the kind of life condition that will allow us to energetically shift and shape our future.
