a prayer for those who have found love
I am grateful dear creator for this experience or rather the multitude of such we call life,
I accept you unconditionally, knowing that you have intimately and completely lived every moment of my existence from the beginning of time, every pleasure, every pain, every loss, and every gain. Every single wave upon my consciousness you have sailed with me, without prejudice.
And above all I am grateful for this special gift you have bestowed upon me, this someone who is unconditionally mine, like I am yours.
This journey of ups and downs, of discovery and loss would be so dreary and daunting without a companion, a confidante..
What words could possibly describe my overwhelming emotions for “this”? a companionship like the smell of rain on dry earth, the relief of shade on scorching sands, the sense of security and belonging a child feels in its mothers arms, the joy and ecstasy of having conquered all.
I thank you for this someone who is mine, for me, with me, someone who can accept me as I really am, someone who can comfort me, cuddle with me, confront and control me when the need arises, create with me, cure with me and thus complete me.
I pray and thus I will it so, that amidst the celebration of the union with my dearest which shall last till the existence of our being, may our journey be blessed with your grace, may it bring out the best in us.
May it illuminate the truth behind the sadder, darker and more difficult situations and let that truth enrich greatly the experience of every good moment that comes our way, thus making us stronger, wiser and more together.
May, we become what our destiny; your destiny intends us to be.
And at peace.
So be it. Amen. Tahthaastu.
