Oh Great Spirit
Guide the tides of this foolish man’s heart.
Just as the waves break against the shore
rush up onto the beach
And escape the ocean’s majestic flow
I also become absent minded
and find myself flowing away from you at times.
Always keep me aware and remind me,
Pull me back into the undertow
Of your abundance and Grace.
Steady my awareness and remind me
That we are never apart from each other
And always connected,
Even at my farthest point of escape.
Make my mind just as the ocean waves.
As they rush up onto the beach
remind me that you are always there with me
and that I will always recede back into you.
