I will not pray for Paris today.
My whole life is a prayer for humanity—
Every day, I pray for the beauty of the world
to be realized in every single being.
Every day I pray for every single cell of my body
to open up and allow Life to flow through it.
And it’s not even a prayer—
I call it simply life.
With every single breath I take,
I breathe in suffering—
Children with sh*tty parents
Ignorance that leads to war
Ignorance in the dull spots of my own heart
I breathe it in—all of it,
And with every breath I take—I pray.
The breath is my prayer—
My life is the prayer.
I will not pray for this or that,
I hold it all at once,
I see the connections between circumstances,
I see my role in it all.
No, I will not pray for Paris,
I will breathe for it and all
