A Prayer by Tagore
This is my prayer to thee, my lord -
strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart.
Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.
Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.
Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before
Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.
And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.
GITANJALI, XXX VI 4
by Shakti Gawain
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards.
They try to HAVE more things or more money in order to DO more
of what they want.
So that they will BE happier.
The way it actually works is reverse.
You must first BE who you really are
Then DO what you need to DO
in order to HAVE what you want.
The purpose of Creative Visualization is
To connect us with our BEINGNESS
to help us focus and facilitate our DOINGNESS
to increase our happiness.
