I've been feeling the true importance of centering meditation.
I feel as though it helps my balance;
in order to see things from a neutral position
or in order to achieve harmony
with people, nature, work, and everything around me.
Several years ago, I had a chance to learn Navojo prayer,
In Beauty May I Walk, which touched my heart.
When I do centering meditation,
my heart seems to reach a state that is something like this prayer.
Let me share that Navojo prayer with you.
"In beauty may I walk
All day long may I walk
Through the returning seasons may I walk
Beautifullly will I possess again
Beautifully joyful birds
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk
With grashoppers about my feet may I walk
With dew about my feet may I walk
With beauty may I walk
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty all around me may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty."
It would be wonderful if each one of us walk in beauty,
then beauty and harmony would be brought to our world.
May all of you walk in beauty:)
