Dear Higher Power and Higher Larger Self, you see all and know all of me. You know all of my past pain, you know my body remembers, you know what a torment past pain can be. Help me remember that today is today. It is a new day. I do not have to carry that past pain with me all the time. Surely there has been so much that has happened to us all that would cause us to break down weeping and never get up, but surely all of that is now in the past. Please I would love a life that is free, one in which I could be lighter, one in which suffering would not endlessly weigh me down. Please help me today to celebrate what is good and healthy and beneficial and hopeful in this day. Help me to open and keep reaching out and to keep love in my heart. Let me be soft with old pain but dont let it hold onto me for too long. Today Higher Power set me free to live and learn and love again.
