A Sunrise Prayer to Start Your Day

A Sunrise Prayer to Start Your Day

A Taoist prayer

As a global community, many of us struggle to maintain our sense of sanity in the midst of the chaos, suffering, and unrest that is unfortunately part of the reality we find in our newsfeed and on television.

Yes, it’s important that we acknowledge the truth of what is happening in the world around us, but we also need to give ourselves the space (and permission) to simply be alive and attentive to this gift of life as it unfolds around us.

We can turn to the wisdom-keepers of our collective past to
help jog our memory on how to do this.

The following is a Taoist prayer that can be very helpful in
challenging times.

All we need is the
morning. 
As long as there is sunrise, 
then there is the possibility 
that we can face all of our misfortunes, 
celebrate all our blessings, 
and live all our endeavors as human beings. 

Spirituality is something that
has become 
necessary in these troubled times. 
Yet it is inherently superfluous. 
We need it to remind ourselves, 
to bolster ourselves, 
to integrate ourselves, 
to fulfill ourselves.

If we could simply
acknowledge 
the mystery of night 
and the glory of morning, 
we would need neither civilization nor spirituality. 
At its simplest, life begins with dawn. 
That is blessing enough. 
All else becomes fullness immeasurable. 

At dawn, kneel down and give
thanks 
for this wonderful event. 
We may think mornings are so common 
they are unworthy of veneration, 
but do you realize most places in the cosmos 
do not have mornings?

This daily event is our supreme goodness.
