Temple Of Light

This is a litany very similar to the one in I Claim This Life; in fact it is just a version that is easier to memorize and chant. Also, it felt wrong to say I claim instead of I offer because it is God who heals and does all the work. It seemed awkward not to make that distinction. I wanted to make the distinction that I am offering all to my Higher Power and not simply swelling up my ego.

I offer this body as a temple for Light and by the power of Light, I am.

Repeat again and focus on the soul instead of the mind.

Repeat again only say, “My life” instead of body, mind or soul.

That will take you to the end of 108 beads on a standard mala

Conclusion:

I surrender my entire life, body, mind and soul to the Light with gratitude and peace.

Amen.

  • What do I mean by saying I am young? This is in reference to Psalm 92 in which God promises we will be young and full of sap even into our old age. It is true, too. I think that 60 (my age) is the new 16. I feel weller and weller every day
