a breath before we begin.
may i communicate with clarity, integrity, and compassion. may my thoughts and words serve as medicine for my own heart and for the hearts of those who find themselves here.
may i use this gift with words to inspire and to build community, and may my contributions be of service to the highest good of all.
may my cynicism die at the hand of my idealism, and may my criticisms invite solutions and opportunities for growth. may this process refine and integrate the fragmented distortions of my present-day reality in favor of wholeness and a lovingkind truth.
may all beings know love, acceptance, and authenticity.
in gratitude and grace.
