This is a prayer to bring energy into your heart when beginning your meditation session.
Uplifting sights and sounds surround
New life at every door
Birth of Spring reminds us all
That life renews in us once more.
Flowers dormant underground
Push through earth, reveal
Brilliance in the light of Spring
Warmth for all to feel.
In thankfulness we lift our eyes
With loving thoughts in heart
We give thanks for all things good
For blessings the Creator imparts.
Let our hearts be ever glad
For beauty that abounds
And gives a taste of heaven's glory
Where Spring is all around.
By caring, sharing gifts on earth
With those who need a blessing
We'll one day reap eternal Spring
In the presence of our Creator
Living a divine blessing.
All around Spring inspires us to get up and out in action. It is a time to get busy with new projects with the return of our determination and energy.
Let your moments in meditation spark actions that are helpful and kind. For these are what bring happiness our way, and comfort and peace most all of the time.
Remember to close each meditation with a prayer of appreciation for the loving people in your life, and for remembering to show love by caring actions.
