My birthday wish

Postby judithj » Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:37 pm

I wish...

I wish for peace. Real peace. If only for a moment.
I wish for that space
to open up
here on Earth,
so that the fullness of that moment may be known -
so that humanity may experience, if only for a moment,
what it means to love –

I wish for us to drop our pretenses
and our need to manipulate others.
I wish for us to find our way past
our games of one upmanship
and to a place where equality reigns-
not because we are
equal in all things,
but because we are
equally loved in all things.

I wish...

I wish for that moment of peace,
experienced around the world,
that in that moment,
in that gifted space,
humanity might see the value
of all life -
that we might see past
wealth -
that all our false measurements of value
if only for a moment,
be wiped away
and, in that moment,
we each see clear to the heart
of each other.

I wish...

I wish for a moment of peace
to break out upon the world,
if only for a few breaths,
to strip away our false gods of power
to pull back the curtain
on the falsehoods that divide us
and pits us against each other -
that the judgments and convictions
that trap our souls
would be released
as we exhale in those moments of peace
and be replaced with the makings of peace...

I wish...

I wish that we would carry that moment
with us -
that we might
lavish in its comfort,
grow in its freedom,
be enriched in its wisdom,
be joyful in its protection
and be at peace.

I wish...
that we might extend that moment
into each of our relationships -
that we might trust each other more,
hurt each other less,
accept each other for who we are
and not what we wish each other to be.

I wish for you.
I wish for me.

That is my birthday wish.

Dear Judith,

that is a very beautiful wish. And it's so much more wonderful than a new gadget, toy or other gift. I wish that some of it comes true for you (all of it may be a bit much to expect ;) ).

Thank you for sharing that with us!

How are you?

Hugs, ngu xxx
