Oh, Great Spirit

I have not blogged in over a week! One of the things I promised myself is that I would be more consistent on my blogging, however I have been feeling like crap for about the past 2 weeks. Low energy, crappy stomach and over all BLAH!!!! I decided to not be so hard on myself and rest. I think it was the Universe's way of telling me not to be such a spaz and stop putting pressure on my self to get so many things finished with self-imposed deadlines!!!
I have a vision/inspiration board hanging on the wall in front of my computer( it is still a work in progress) and on it I have an old native american poem. I love this poem and see it everyday. The other day a friend of mine sent it to me on facebook and reminded me of how much I love this poem! So- I will share it with y'all!

"Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to all the world.
Hear me; I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice
Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.
Help me to remain calm and strong in the face of all that comes towards me.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf & rock.
Help me seek pure thoughts & act with the intention of helping others.
Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - Myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.
                   So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame.
