The Woman’s book of Prayer author Becca Anderson has a little daily inspiration for anyone out there.
Blessed are they who give
without expecting even thanks in return,
for they shall be abundantly rewarded.
Blessed are they who translate
every good thing they know into action,
for ever higher truths shall be revealed unto them.
Blessed are they who do God’s will
without asking to see results,
for great shall be their recompense.
Blessed are they who love and trust their fellow beings,
for they shall reach the good in people and
receive a loving response.
Blessed are they who have seen reality, for they know
that not the garment of clay but that which activates
the garment of clay is real and indestructible.
Blessed are they who see the change we call death
as a liberation from the limitation of this earth-life,
for they shall rejoice with their loved ones
who make the glorious transition.
Blessed are they who after dedicating their lives
and thereby receiving a blessing, have the courage and faith
to surmount the difficulties of the path ahead,
for they shall receive a second blessing.
Blessed are they who advance toward the spiritual path
without the selfish motive of seeking inner peace,
for they shall find it.
Blessed are they who instead of trying to
batter down the gates of the kingdom of heaven
approach them humbly and lovingly and purified,
for they shall pass right through.
