the writer's prayer

May I accept my role as the vessel through which creativity pours.

May I step aside so that inspiration may step through me. May the ego’s dictatorship diminish and disappear.

May I grow ever more comfortable in the space between right and wrong, where whispers and inklings congregate.

May I keep all my eyes wide-eyed, including my mind’s eye and my third eye.

May I sense my place in the web of life that extends beyond the physical universe.

May time stand still as I weave words to conjure infinities for readers. May my reach for words find wealth in wonder. May my reach always exceed my grasp, so I keep growing.

May I always remember that curiosity is the route to fascination, fascination is the route to creativity, and creativity is the route to joy.

May joy prevail.
