May I stay open to the “full catastrophe” of life – with every breath aware of the suffering of so many, including my own, and may I intend relief for all who suffer.

May I radiate enthusiasm for life, creativity, and joy under all circumstances and thereby benefit countless beings.

May everyone awaken to the limitless fountain of kindness, compassion, joy-with-others, and equanimity – naturally present in all beings.
