Since I’ve been preoccupied with other matters today, I decided to check in with Katalusis readers by posting this revised version of an ancient Buddhist prayer on behalf of myself, my family and friends, members of my church, my seminary community, my online community, and all suffering people throughout the world.
May we release all burdens from the past that no longer serve us;
May we release all needless worry, fear, and anxiety;
May we be filled with loving kindness;
May we be protected from all internal and external harm;
May we be as healthy and whole as possible;
May we be centered, peaceful, and at ease;
May we enjoy both spiritual and material well being;
May we be happy.
