Grateful

Good morning earth

And what will you bring me today

For you have given me too much

Spoiled rotten but I’m thankful

Welcoming the sunrise

With all of my soul

Lucky to be alive another day

A Bodhisattva’s Prayer for Humanity – Rise Like A Lotus

May I be a guard for those who need protection

A guide for those on the path

A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood

May I be a lamp in the darkness

A resting place for the weary

A healing medicine for all who are sick

A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles

And for the boundless multitudes of living beings

May I bring sustenance and awakening

Enduring like the earth and sky

Until all beings are freed from sorrow

And all are awakened.

– Shantideva, Indian Buddhist sage 700 A.D. Prayer performed each morning by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
