God if I have compassion for you
If I have compassion for me
In action, I will never be lost.

I Will Be

God, you do not need to hear my prayers -- they travel nowhere,
because you were with me before I even thought I needed to pray.

I climb you, I live with you, surrounded by you, always in contact with you --
utterly sweetly influenced like a baby is cared for by a Mother.

And like a child, sometime I imagine I am alone and not loved,
even when I know my Mother is just away in other rooms, loving me.

I will be like a Mother to this place you have put me into,
and love your other creatures like you love me.

God, if I want you, you are here.
If I don't want you, you are here.

Water is water. God is God.
You are in the water. You are out of the water.

Air is air. God is God.
You are in the air. You are out of the air.

Fire, Wind, Life, Death.
You are in it, and out from it.

Lord, I will be kind towards others
and I will be present to whatever is revealed
for you are my Courage, all the days of my life.

In Doing Anything

God, in doing anything -- how can I say I did not succeed?

Even in the impression of not finding you, God is found.

There Is No Journey Into You

All futility is in myself,
There is no restaint if I surrender into You.

There is no journey into You,
there is no path to be taken, or missed.

You cannot be missed because
You are unavoidable.

You are the ground I walk on,
the air I breath, supporting the thoughts I think.

There is no journey into You.

Let Me Do Any Work, Which is Thy Will

Oh God, save me from the concept of aiming to be noticed, in any way.

Let me do any work, which is thy Will, quietly, and anonymously!

Let me be overlooked by my fellows.

Let me move from the conceit of self, into union, in you.
