    From out of the darkness arise and awake

    Open wide the door to morning
    Take love as you depart
    Walk gently on the Earth
    With kindness in your heart
    Open wide the door to morning
    Take courage as you go
    Stand for the small and helpless
    Work for the good to grow
    Open wide the door to morning
    Take beauty as a clay
    And mold an act of thankfulness
    For the blessing of this day

    HEALING

    When I am sad,
    I want to cry

      a puddle
      a river
      an ocean of tears

    A downpour:

      my sadness
      my anger
      my fears…

    Then the storm rolls over,
    And a rainbow appears!

    =====

    I will breathe new life upon you
    when your heart is sinking low,
    I will wipe your brow and kiss your eyes
    ‘til the sadness decides to go,
    And I’ll stand strong beside you
    as you learn from sorrow’s pain,
    That like the birds in springtime –
    your joy will come again.

    =====

    Two Angels on my head
    Two Angels on my feet
    Two Angels on my left
    Two Angels on my right
    Two Angels at my back
    Two Angels at my front
    And all the Angels love and protect me

    =====

    From my head to my feet, I am the image of God
    From my heart to my hands, I feel the breath of God
    When I speak with my mouth, I follow God’s will
    When I behold God everywhere
    In mother, in father
    In all dear people
    In beast and flower
    In tree and stone
    Nothing brings fear
    But love to all that is around me.

    =====

    May light stream into you that can take hold of you.
    I follow its rays with the warmth of my love.
    I think with my thinking’s best thoughts of joy
    0n the stirrings of your heart.
    May they strengthen you,
    May they carry you,
    May they cleanse you.

    =====

    I want to gather these thoughts of joy
    Before the steps of your life,
    That they unite with your will for life,
    And find itself with strength
    In the world,
    Ever more,
    Through itself.
    ~ Rudolf Steiner
