#1: Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace by St Francis of Assisi


Make me a channel of your peace

Where there is hatred let me bring your love

Where there is injury, your pardon Lord

And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.


Make me a channel of your peace

Where there’s despair in life let me bring hope

Where there is darkness, only light

And where there’s sadness only joy.

O Master grant that I may never seek

So much to be consoled as to console

To be understood as to understand

To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

It is in giving to all men that we receive

And in dying that we are born to eternal life.


#2: From Robert Bloomfield


I love to mark the floweret’s eye

To rest where pebbles form my bed

Where shapes and colours scattered lie

In varying millions round my head

The soul rejoices when alone

And feels her glorious empire free

Sees God in every shining stone

And revels in variety


#3: The Small Beautitudes by The Small Beautitudes


Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves;

they will have no end of fun.

Blessed are those who can tell a mountain from a molehill;

they will be saved a lot of bother.

Blessed are those who know how to relax

without looking for excuses;

they are on their way to becoming wise.

Blessed are those who are sane enough

not to take themselves too seriously;

they will be valued most by those about them.

Happy are you if you can take small things seriously

and face serious things calmly;

you will go far in life.

Happy are you if you can appreciate a smile and forget a frown;

you will walk on the sunny side of the street.

Happy are you if you can be kind in

understanding the attitudes of others

even when the signs are unfavourable;

you may be taken for a fool, but this is the price of charity.

Blessed are those who think before acting and pray before thinking;

they will avoid many blunders.


Happy are you if you know how to hold your tongue and smile,

even when people interrupt and contradict you or tread on your toes;

the Gospel has begun to seep into your heart.

Above all,

blessed are you who recognise the Lord in all whom you meet;

the light of truth shines in your life

for you have found true wisdom.


#4: From Mahatma Gandhi


I offer you peace.

I offer you Love.

I offer you Friendship.

I see your Beauty.

I hear your need.

I feel your feelings.

My wisdom flows from the Highest Source.

I salute that Source in you.

Let us work together for unity and love.


#5: A to Zen of Life by Dalai Lama


Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits.

Believe in yourself.

Consider things from every angle.

Don’t give up and don’t give in.

Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear.

Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches.

Give more than you planned to.

Hang onto your dreams.

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Keep trying no matter how hard it seems.

Love yourself.

Make it happen.

Never lie, steal or cheat.

Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

Practice makes perfect.

Quality not quantity in anything you do.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Stop procrastinating.

Take control of your own destiny.

Understand yourself in order to better understand others.

Visualize it.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Xcellence in all your efforts.

You are unique, nothing can replace you.

Zero in on your target, and go for it.


#6: Decide To Dream by Robert Muller


Decide to widely open the gates

Of your wonderful Mind, Heart and Soul

Let flow in the dreams of God

Of the Angels, Saints, Prophets and Sages

Give birth and let out into the world the dreams

Of your own unique, unrepeatable Cosmic Being.

If not born for any other purpose..

Be born to dream, be born to love

Be born to fashion a better world

Dreams and dreamers never die

From Heaven you will see your dreams come true

You will reincarnate, inspire and energize new dreamers

The dreams of our beautiful Planet of Dreams will never die

Until we become the paradise we were always meant to be

And are about to joyfully become
