This is a prayer for
the illumination of the body
the body of the earth
which is our rock and breath
the body of the self
which is the shining
eternal strand of
the soul
the body of material substance which
is the ancient gentle
temple of the spirit.
May you move your divine hand
across us in each of these planes,
allowing the earth
of our bodies 
and the ether
of our souls
to become fit grand vessels
for your and our own
illustrious light.

-Daphne Rose Kingma
