Arrival – a meditative prayer
We are entering states of arrival.
You are invited to imagine
The exciting arrival of the new born
The stepping off the plane on holiday
The unexpected rainbow.
That moment that friendship becomes friendship
And yes unsettling states of arrival
The uniformed one stepping onto another nation’s land
The first crime
The beckoning light that means the dimming of your light on this earth
And yet he we are in an arrival we can have every day
Every hour if we choose
Arrival into the spirit of community
Arrival into the community of spirit.
We arrive today into the spirit of our community
In the presence of a goodness outside of ourselves
We arrive today into the community of spirit
Ever revealing truths
Open heart and open mind
To be the loving kind
To be the living kind
That takes this arrival seriously
Accepts the guidance willingly
And every day
Everywhere we go
Every time we speak
With every action taken
For this arrival in the spirit of community
For this arrival in the community of spirit
