The blessing of self-giving

In facing the truth, may we be set free from illusion;
in accepting our wounds, may we be healed and made whole;
in embracing the outcast, may we know we are all one;
in seeking true innocence, may we no longer harm;
in yielding to dying, may abundant life flow from us;
in vulnerable risk, may we know love’s pain and joy;
in the folly of self-giving, may we follow the Way of Wisdom,
and be a blessing to the world.
