Spirits, guardians and Angels
Souls of my ancestors long gone and descendents not yet born
I want to thank you for my many blessings
I ask forgiveness for my many sins and overindulgences
I ask that you please help me walk humbly through this world
While also knowing that I am truly worthy of the beauty and riches in it
Let me always know your love
Support me in my noble endeavors
Help nurture my heart and soul
And be your ever ready servant upon this journey
Heal my body and help my mind
That I may hear your wishes and advice loudly within myself
That I may trust in you, even when I don’t trust in myself or the world
That I may have all the courage I need to champion the virtues you represent
Compassion, loyalty, truth, honor
That I may not stray so far from your reach that I forget the splendor and majesty of your love
Which is truly all I need in this world
Bless my children
That they may know you
That they may hear you
Protect their souls
Feed their mind with true righteousness
And their hearts with pure love
I ask that you please help my little family to live long, happy, prosperous lives together
And help us to never forget to leave wherever we go better for our having been there
And last but not least
Please help this world heal and grow from its current state to a real spiritual revolution of love for all humankind, for the beautiful planet you graciously made for us, for whatever plan you have us on.
May we all rise up to being the most loving beings and compassionate versions of ourselves we can each possibly be. With your benevolence and grace I know that this alone will be enough to propel us to a new paradigm of miraculous possibilities.
Please open our hearts to your love, strengthen our connection to you, give us courage to do what is right against any odds, and help us to clearly see the errors of our own misguided ways and atone for them whenever possible.
This is a very similar version of a prayer I said this morning. Just wanted to share.
So I’m watching The Hobbit. I am on the third movie. I really am enjoying it. So much so I am going to add it to my list of books to read. One of the side stories I am very much into is the love triangle between the elves Tauriel and Legolas and the dwarf Kili.
Tauriel comes on the scene in the second movie as this badass warrior. Legolas is prince and heir to the throne of the elf kingdom. But you can see immediately that he loves Tauriel deeply. You see the king tell Tauriel that she is in no standing to have amorous aspirations with his son, which she acknowledges. But you never see if she ever had those feelings to begin with. Then you see her develop a strong bond with Kili, who she gives up everything to save.
But all along the way Legolas, who knows she is falling in love with Kili, saves her life repeatedly; even going against his father and denouncing his own kingdom to stand with her, because she needs him, because it is the right thing to do, because his love for her compels him to do so. And never does he ask her for anything in return, demand her love, or even her recognition of it.
It is the most pure love I can ever imagine and it truly makes me swoon. It obviously doesn’t hurt that it’s Orlando Bloom either. 😉. But the sentiment of it is so truly breathtaking to me.
Now by this point in the last movie* Kili has just died. So I am not sure how the triangle will end. These elves are minor characters and while they add a very enjoyable story line from what I’ve gathered Tauriel isn’t actually in the books.
All the same. I am enjoying these movies tremendously. I’ve always liked science fiction so it shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise to me I guess; and yet it still does. 🤣
*Which I have not yet finished because the final fight scene is ridiculously long and only 1/4 of it (at best) is actually propelling the movie along. Which makes it a bit excruciating to have to sit through. I don’t particularly like fight scenes, gore and unnecessary violence. Really just not my thing. 🤷🏽♀️. But I’ll finish it today none the less.
