Help me not to act out of my fear of my death
but to surrender to my living and my dying every day,
trusting the beauty in all things.
Help me give up
harsh, unloving and self-incriminating judgment,
to steward the body and mind I have have today
with loving kindness, compassion and grace.
innate and fundamental goodness
is the essence of all life.
