whose voice I hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life to all the world,
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty
and let my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears grow sharp to hear your voice.
Make we wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength not to be greater than my brother or sister
but to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me always ready
to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes
So when life fades as the fading sunset
my spirit may come to you without shame.
-Chief Yellow Lark
May your every prayer be formed in the fire of your heart, and rise through your throat, to be uttered from honest lips.
May your deepest desires be ignited, patterns transformed, hurts healed, prayers answered.
There is no better day than today, to become who you already are.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
OM. AMEN. HALLELUJAH.
