The Toltec Mystery school tradition crossed my path a few years ago. It has decided to enter again. A friend, and separately a client, recently reminded me of Don Miguel Ruiz's Four Agreements. I now have them type gifted, on pretty pink large ink, beside my desk.
And, this morning my eye caught his book, The Mastery of Love, A Toltec Wisdom Book, on my shelf.
As my fingers flicked through the old familiar pages, I was drawn to a prayer.
The perfect prayer for today. I dedicate it to my friend. Yes, the one who gifted me a copy of the Four Agreements. But I am not sure if she has this one.
It is her birthday today. She has walked the Camino twice. And today she is somewhere walking the spectacularly sensational Great Ocean Road. She, like me, revels in awareness with Spirit, and Nature. And the pleasure of being alive.
This is the Prayer for Awareness. Yes more, always rich, wonderful, sensational, more...
It is a bit long, but she won't mind.
Breathe into it if you will. I hope you find something fulfilling in and from it too.
Today, Creator of the Universe, we ask that you open our heart and open our eyes so we can enjoy all of your creations and live in eternal love with you. Help us to see you in everything we perceive with our eyes, with our ears, with our heart, with all our senses. Let us perceive with eyes of love so that we find you wherever we go and see you in everything you create. Let us see you in every cell of our body, in every emotion of our mind, in every dream, in every flower, in every person we meet. You cannot hide from us because you are everywhere, and we are one with you. Let us be aware of this truth.
Let us be aware of our power to create a dream of heaven where everything is possible. Help us to use our imagination to guide the dream of our life, the magic of our creation, so we can live without fear, without anger, without jealousy, without envy. Give us a light to follow, and let today be the day that our search for love and happiness is over. Today let something extra-ordinary happen that will change our life forever; Let everything we do and say be an expression of the beauty in our heart, always based on love.
Help us to be the way you are, to love the way you love, to create a masterpiece of beauty and love. Beginning today, and gradually over time, help us to increase the power of our love so that we may create a masterpiece of art - our own life. Today, Creator, we give you all of our gratitude and love because you have given us life. Amen.
By way of further insight, Don Miguel Ruiz, born in rural Mexico, was raised by a curandera (healer) mother and a nagual (shaman) grandfather. As a former medical surgeon, and now a nagual himself, he is spreading the rich esoteric Toltec centuries-old wisdom throughout the world.
May you commune with Creator, and with all that pleases you around and throughout your senses.
