This affirmation, written by a Books Behind Bars recipient, arrived in the mail this week.
Be Free and Soar
You will meet this life challenge
With the strength of your Willpower, Integrity and Truth
Look to your Wisdom, Confidence, and Inner Guidance
Trust in Your Self
And the guidance of the creator – your higher self.
Be patient, hang in there, and persevere
You will not be forsaken
No matter how bleak things appear
Honour your Physical, Mental, Spiritual well-being
Know and cherish your worth.
Build Honesty, Understanding, Trust, Expression
Among others and yourself
Give it and accept it.
Life is a symbiotic effort and process.
May you have invigorating and substantial blessings.
May your adventures be
Mind-expanding, spiritually-uplifting and body-empowering.
Don’t grasp or cling to Life.
Nor take up aversion or flee from it.
Go there, don’t run there.
And embrace it.
You will succeed!
Regardless of the outcome.
