A New Twist on an Old Prayer

O creative Breath,
ebbing and flowing through all forms,

Free us from all constrictions,
so that the current of thy life
may move in us without hindrance.

Empower us with thy creativity,
and clothe us with royal dignity,

So that, fully at one with the vortex of thy desire,
sacred actions pour forth from us
with each breath we release.

Renew in us this day
our lifebreath, vigour, and passion,

And untie the tangled threads of destiny which bind us,
as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.

Do not let us lose ourselves in distraction,
but by the way of the breath,
lead us into mindfulness.

For from thy depths pour forth
the Way, the Life, and the Splendour,
from age to age, it is so. Ameyn.
