A Prayer by Tagore

This is my prayer to thee, my lord – 
strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart.

Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.

Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.

Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might.

Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.

And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.

Rabindranath Tagore

Creative Visualization

by Shakti Gawain

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards.

They try to HAVE more things or more money in order to DO more of what they want.

So that they will BE happier.

The way it actually works is reverse.

You must first BE who you really are

Then DO what you need to DO

in order to HAVE what you want.

The purpose of Creative Visualization is

To connect us with our BEINGNESS

to help us focus and facilitate our DOINGNESS

to increase our happiness.
