The Supreme Prayer

Copyright 2016 by R.A. Robbins

The supreme prayer of my heart is not to be learned, rich, famous, powerful, or good, but simply to be radiant. I desire to radiate health, cheerfulness, calm courage, and good will. I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural, clean in mind and clean in body, unaffected, as ready to say I do not know, if it be so, and to meet all men on an absolute equality, to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid. I wish others to live their lives, too – up to their highest, fullest, and best. To that end I pray that I may never meddle, interfere, dictate, give advice that is not wanted, or assist when my services are not needed. If I can help people, I’ll do it by giving them a chance to help themselves; and if I can uplift or inspire, let it be by example, inference, and suggestion, rather than by injunction and dictation. That is to say, I desire to be radiant – to radiate life.” Elbert Hubbard 

Thought for Today

A spiritual leader does not say,  ‘Follow me.’ A spiritual leader says, ‘I’ll go first.’  Decide today to take the oath:
I promise to “go first” in demonstrating forgiveness, compassion, understanding, generosity, kindness, cheerfulness, positivity, and love. — Neale Donald Walsch
