AN ANIMIST’S PRAYER To the breath of life: Help me to live this day as an instrument of sharing, inspiration, love, and respect Let me be guided by an ancestral world of the chant and the drum, the poem and the dance, the hunt and the fire, the animistic perspective of the human condition as spiritual essence in a spiritual world! Then help me to focus all that I am toward the good I can do for the people I touch, for the stones and the water, the wildlife and wood, the plants, the air and the celestial arrays of the place where I live, for all I can discern that is sacred and near, infinite and beyond. May I be a visible example of how we might live if we really believe that our precious, precarious, miraculous lives, are one shared breath and inherently divine! Amen, Shalom, Salam, Peace and Blessed Be!
