A Christmas Blessing

May each one of us
perceive the vision
of love and peace
this season,
and have the trust,
and compassion
to manifest it
throughout the year.

May our thoughts
that obscure
the inherent beauty
be transmuted,
revealing the means
of right relationship.

May we come to know
ourselves with
while turning aside
aggression and fear,
calling forth harmony
and joy for all beings.

-Michael Carpenter
