Prayer for Monday (Maidyozarem)

Life has no meaning.
Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life.
It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.
~ Joseph Campbell

Eternal Wisdom,
source of life and grace,
bless all who are seeking
the meaning of life.
Endow them with courage
to risk the unknown.
Bless them with wonder
to be still and rejoice.
Anoint them with wisdom
to understand the potential
of their dreams.
Blessed is your name,
now and evermore. Amen.

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
May all be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow;

And may all live in equanimity,
without too much attachment and too much aversion,
And live believing in the equality of all that lives.

May today there be peace within you.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

It is there for each and every one of you.
