Walk Beside Me
Don't walk in front of me,
I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Walk beside me
and be my friend.
-- An Irish Blessing
The stars shine on the earth,
And the stars shine on the sea
The stars shine on the face of God
And the stars shine down on me.
The stars shall shine for as thousand years.
A thousand and a day,
But my God and I shall still live on,
When the stars have faded away.
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
I ask the great Unseen Healing Force to remove all obstructions from my mind and body and to restore me to perfect health. I ask this in all sincerity and honesty and I will do my part.
I ask this great Unseen Healing Force to help both present and absent ones who are in need of help and to restore them to perfect health.
I put my trust in the love and power of God.
Deep Peace: Ancient Celtic Benediction
Deep peace of the Running Wave to you.
Deep peace of the Flowing Air to you.
Deep peace of the Quiet Earth to you.
Deep peace of the Shining Stars to you.
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you.
Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
The Zoroastrian Prayer for Peace
We pray to God to eradicate all the misery in the world: that understanding triumph over ignorance, that generosity triumph over indifference, that trust triumph over contempt, and that truth triumph over falsehood.
I love you my brothers and sisters, wherever you are.
Whether you kneel in your church
worship in your Synagogue or pray in your mosque...
I love you whoever you are,
you and I are all children of one faith,
for the diverse paths of religion are
the fingers of the living hand of one Supreme Being,
a hand extended to all.
- Kahlil Gibran
Psalms of Life (Emma Hardinge)
"I beheld a golden portal in the vision of my slumber,
And from it streamed the radiance of a never setting day;
Whilst angels, tall and beautiful, and countless, without number,
Were giving gladsome greeting to all who came that way.
And the gate, forever swinging, made no grating, no harsh ringing,
Melodious as the singing of one that we adore;
And I heard the chorus swelling, grand beyond a mortal's telling,
And the burden of that chorus was
Hope's glad word 'evermore!'"
FOR THOSE WHO LOVED ME
When I am gone, Release me, Let me go.
I have so many things to see and do
You mustnít tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now itís time I traveled on alone.
So grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
So bless the memories within your heart,
Itís only for a while that we must part,
I wonít be far away for life goes on,
So if you need me, call and I will come,
Though you canít see or touch me,
Iíll be near,
And if you listen with your heart youíll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear
And then, when you must come this way alone,
Iíll greet you with a smile and -- Welcome Home.

MAY YOU ALWAYS FEEL LOVED
May you find serenity and tranquility
in a world you may not always understand.
May the pain you have known
and the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life
facing each new situation
with optimism and courage.
Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there
even when you feel most alone.
May you discover enough goodness in others
to believe in a world of peace.
May a kind word, a reassuring touch,
a warm smile, be yours every day of your life,
and may you give these gifts as well as receive them.
Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.
Teach love to those who know hate,
and let that love embrace you as you go into the world.
May the teachings of those you admire
become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.
Remember, those whose lives you have touched and who
have touched yours are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less
than you would have wished.
May you not become too concerned
with material matters, but instead place
immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day to see the beauty
and love in the world around you.
Realize that each person has limitless abilities,
but each of us is different in our own way.
What you may feel you lack in one regard
may be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
may become one of your strengths in the future.
May you see your future
as one filled with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything
as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength to determine
your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent on another's judgements
of your accomplishments.
May you always feel loved.
