Meditation Poem Series: #81

I sat this evening with my weekly meditation group. We did 20 minutes of guided meditation lead by one of the members. I sat on the floor using my jacket as a cushion to elevate my hips off the floor. I noticed how tired and lethargic I felt. After meditation was over, I went to the gym and worked out for an hour or so. I feel less lethargic, and nice treating myself to Ramen with veggies and hard boiled egg added by your truly.

Meditation Poem #81
each moment a blessing
when received with gratitude
no expectations

A Blessing for the New Year

O Holy One,

May this day be blessed by the breath of life flowing in us and through us.
We give thanks for the past year, for all the ups and downs, and through it all that You were with us.

May you bless our hearts with openness and courage to embrace each moment
as a precious gift.

May we continue to grow, change, and receive each day with renewed hope and trust in Your infinite love.

May we share this gift of love freely given to us with those who feel apart and alone.

In Your Name We pray,

Amen.
