Some days are hard. On days like today, the bad news is too much, and it's hard to find a light in the darkness. You want to push forward, but the overwhelming weight of the world makes it hard. For me, today is one of those days. Sad news about friends, co-workers, acquaintances, the country I live in...it's just a lot. So today, I turn to the flame, both inside and out, and ask for a bit of healing, both for myself and for those around me who are suffering in their own ways.
Sacred Fire, Burn within us!
May the might of the fire burn away illness.
May the warmth of the embers comfort all pain.
May the light of the flame brighten the darkness.
By the spark, be connected and heal all malaise.
