I wish your wishes are granted.I have begun saying a "prayer" before I open this site.
wil's prayer is akin to the Lord's Prayer (as I understand it) not to be said word for word, but "in the manner of", "with similar intent".
I give thanx for the existence of I/O
For the peace it gives me.
For the thought it inspires.
Allow me to do the same for others.
I wish to be peace.
I give thanx for the participants of I/O
As I explore my beliefs with them
And they explore their beliefs with me.
Allow me to do so with the least resistance in both directions.
I wish to be a blessing.
I give thanx for the challenges I/O presents.
Allow me to maintain my cool and BP.
Allow me to read their posts with fresh eyes.
And provide responses so others may do the same.
I wish to be love.
I seek first to understand and be thankful when I am understood.
I allow others space to believe and find their way to do so without creating waves.
I wish to be.
I breathe in all I find here that is beneficial, and exhale that which I cannot use in this moment...
I give thanx for those who challenge my wishes, as it provides me practice to strengthen my resolve and stay on my path.
It is new, it helps set my intention, and seek to find a way to appreciate all who participate here.
