For Today…

Evergreen detail. Taken 2/6/11. Canon A 1100 IS.

While feeling wordless today, knowing what is happening in the world, I found what feel like the best words, a prayer that is much, much older than me:

“To the heavens be peace, to the sky and the earth, to the waters be peace, to plants and all trees, to the Gods be peace, to Brahman be peace, to all men be peace, again and again…” — Arthava Veda

(P.S. If the terms “Gods” and “Brahman” make you uncomfortable, please substitute your preferred terms for Divinity.  I personally believe all prayers end up in the same place, no matter how they’re addressed.)
