Prayer for the Grieving

Prayer for the Grieving

by Jim Mulvaney

Having been sorely diminished in the depths of your grief,
May you find yourself enriched beyond measure.

Having lost all hope in your loved one’s future,
May you find hope and meaning in your own.

Having lost the caring and support of your loved one,
May you treat yourself with unconditional loving kindness.

Having been stripped of your motivation,
May you discover in the silence your true calling.

Having been filled with regret and self reproach,
May you be redeemed in how you love now.

Having raged at the injustice of life,
May you experience deep gratitude for the awesome perfection of existence.

Having lost your knowing,
May you dance to the music of the Mystery.

 

Having lost the caring and support of your loved one,
May you treat yourself with unconditional loving kindness.
