Affirmation of a Disciple

I am a point of light within a greater Light.

I am a strand of loving energy

within the stream of Love divine.

I am a point sacrificial fire

focused within the fiery Will of God.

And thus I stand.

 

I am a way by which men may achieve.

I am a source of strength,

enabling them to stand.

I am a beam of light,

shining upon their way.

And thus I stand.

 

And standing thus, revolve.

And tread this way the ways of men,

And know the ways of God.

And thus I stand.

Mantram of Unification

The sons of men are one

and I am one with them.

I seek to love, not hate;

I seek to serve and not exact due service;

I seek to heal, not hurt.

 

Let pain bring due reward

of light and love.

Let the soul control the outer form,

and life and all events

And bring to light the love

that underlies the happenings of the time.

 

Let vision come and insight.

Let the future stand revealed.

Let inner union demonstrate

and outer cleavages be gone.

Let love prevail. Let all men love.

Blessing to All Beings – The Four Immeasurables

May all sentient beings have happiness

and the cause of happiness;

May they be free from suffering

and the causes of suffering;

May they be inseparable from

the sublime happiness

which is beyond sorrow.

And may all abide in great equanimity,

free from attachment to loved ones,

and aversion to others.

May they live believing in the

equality of all that lives.

Therefore We Do Not Lose Heart

Therefore we do not lose heart.

Though outwardly we are wasting away,

yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

For our light and momentary troubles

are achieving for us an eternal glory

that far outweighs them all.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen.

For what is seen is temporary,

but what is unseen is eternal.

Flood My Soul Jesus

Dear Jesus, help us to spread

your fragrance everywhere we go.

Flood our souls with your spirit and life.

Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly

that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.

Shine through us and be so in us that every soul

we come in contact with may

feel your presence in our soul.

Let them look up and see

no longer us, but only Jesus.

Stay with us and then we shall begin

to shine as you shine,

so to shine as to be light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from you.

None of it will be ours.

It will be you shining on others through us.

Let us thus praise you in the way

you love best by shining on those around us.

Let us preach you without preaching,

not by words, but by our example;

by the catching force,

the sympathetic influence of what we do,

the evident fullness of the love

our hearts bear to you.

Amen.

 

St. Mother Teresa
