A Prayer

Help me do good today.
Let me shine with your light.
May I be compassionate.
May I be kind.
May I be loving.
May I be my better Self.
Help me do good today.
There are times when I am less that the above.  Times where I strive simply not to do harm, when doing good feels far beyond my reach but I reach anyway.

Never, despite all of my madness or anger or fear or sorrow; never, despite the bitterness I have felt at human iniquities; never have I thought that anyone else should suffer or die because they didn't think, act, believe, worship, love or live as I do.

If we collectively worried less about who or how our fellows are loving and worried more about how we could do good today...perhaps the world might become a gentler, kinder, friendlier, happier, more pleasant place to live.
