New Year's Meditation and Prayer for Peace
New Year's Day is an opportunity to begin anew with a fresh and brightened attitude that will bring forth fruits of useful thoughts. Ideas and actions that are good for us and helpful for everyone spring from positive attitudes.
Let's take this opportunity, this "new year" to change our deepest attitudes to those of kindness and helpfulness for our worldwide family.
May we meditate on these verses sometime on New Year's Day, that peace will over all the earth, shine over each; brighten lives in many ways.
Peace Prayer for the New Year
"May peace prevail deep in our hearts
May peace prevail at home
May peace weave through our daily lives
May worldwide peace
Our goal become.
We are one human family
With roots in many lands
Let's be the peace remembering
Our ancestors together
Worked hand in hand.
Let's take the opportunity this day
Spread New Year's blessings 'round
Let's each send love
Through thoughts and prayers
Let bindings come unbound.
From thoughts that bind humanity
That keep each other tied
To preconceptions that we're different
When reality is
For all of us one family are
When looked at from above
The heavenly view sees everyone
As dear brothers and sisters
A family of love."
