Prayer for Friday

The Jewish holiday of Sukkot continues today.

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water.
Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup,
you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle,
you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow or it can crash.
Be water, my friend.
~ Bruce Lee

We are a link in Amida’s golden chain of love that stretches around the world,
we will keep our link bright and strong.
We will be kind and gentle to every living thing
and protect all who are weaker than ourselves.
We will think pure and beautiful thoughts, say pure and beautiful words,
and do pure and beautiful deeds.
May every link in Amida’s chain of love be bright and strong,
and may we all attain perfect peace.
Namo Amida Buddha.
