Words and Prayers

Sacred Space
by Robert Patrick 

With this flame we enter into this moment

To kindle the flame of our souls.

Breathing in, breathing out

We journey into the sacred space that has always been here. 

We enter heart space, and all that it has born, as sacred space.

Let us find here the wisdom, the word, the work and the wonder that has been waiting for our particular yearning.

With this flame, we enter sacred space.
