we begin again – a meditation

Sunrise

 

For remaining silent when a single voice would have made a difference.
 We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again in love.
For each time that our fears have made us rigid and inaccessible
 We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again in love.
For each time that we have struck out in anger without just cause
 We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again in love.
For the selfishness which sets us apart and alone
 We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again in love.
For falling short of the admonitions of the spirit
 We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again in love.
For those and for so many acts which have fueled the illusion of separateness
 We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again in love.

Robert Eller-Isaacs

Today is a new day. Today, I can forgive myself for the excesses, the angers, the resentments, the silences of yesterday. Today, I can begin again in love.

Today, I can start the day by connecting with my Higher Power. Today, I can put aside the craziness of yesterday. Today, I can dedicate myself to living my principles.

Today, I will look at the world through the eyes of my Higher Power, which loves everyone and everything just as they are. Today, I can put aside my need for others to change. Today, I can look at myself with love, and know that I am human, and I am loved, and that I am OK.

Today, I can forgive myself and others. Today, I can begin again in love.

A meditation for August 15, 2013.
