The Warrior’s Prayer
I am what I am.
In having faith in the beauty within me,
I develop trust.
In softness I have strength.
In silence I walk with the Gods.
In peace I understand myself and the world.
In conflict I walk away.
In detachment I am free.
In respecting all living things, I respect myself.
In dedication I honour the courage within me.
In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.
In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.
In freedom I have power.
In my individuality I express the God Force within me.
In service I give of what I have become.
I am what I am:
Eternal, immortal, universal and infinite.
And so be it.
