Random Acts of Creativity Friday - Creative Awakenings

Healing Prayer from Eagle Woman

May our eyes remain open even in the face of tragedy.

May we not become disheartened.

May we find in the dissolution of our apathy and denial,the cup of the broken heart.

May we discover the gift of the fire burning in the inner chamber of our being--burning great and bright enough to transform any poison.

May we offer the power of our sorrow to the service of something greater than ourselves.

May our guilt not rise up to form yet another defensive wall.

May the suffering purify and not paralyze us.

May we realize the greatness of our sorrow and not run from its touch or flame.

May clarity be our ally and wisdom our support.

May our wrath be cleansing, cutting through the confusion of denial and greed.

May we not be afraid to see or speak our truth.

May the bleakness of the wasteland be dispelled.

May the soul's journey be revealed and the true hunger fed.

May we be forgiven for what we have forgotten and blessed with the remembrance of who we really are.

I found your blog from the Creative Awakenings NING group. I loved your idea of 25 lists of 25 and had to read more. I would love to hear about what part of Poland you were in when you were there with the Peace Corps. I studied there in the mid 80's.
