“3 Cornerstones for Personal Healing” with Asha Lightbearer
While healing can sometimes occur instantly in a moment of divine intervention, most often that is not the path you must travel to recover from difficult and painful experiences in your life. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a mystical moment along the way! Let’s look at some tools for opening to the profound experiences of healing you sometimes hear others talk about.
When available, a revised transcript of this week’s talk is provided below for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Prayers, readings, and songs from this week’s service are also provided below.

The Our Father
O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos
Focus your light within us- make it useful;
Create your reign of unity now –
Your one desire then acts with ours
As in all light, so in all forms.
Grant what we need for each day in bread and insight.
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold
Of others’ guilt.
Don’t let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
The power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
Truly, power to these statements-
May they be the ground from which all
My actions grow; Amen
~ From Prayers of the Cosmos, translated from the Aramaic by Sufi author Neil Douglas-Klotz
In One Family
Send thy peace O Lord, which is perfect and everlasting,
that our souls may radiate peace.
Send thy peace O Lord, that we may think, act, and speak harmoniously.
Send thy peace O Lord, that we may be contented and thankful for Thy bountiful gifts.
Send thy peace O Lord, that amidst our worldly strife, we may enjoy Thy bliss.
Send thy peace O Lord, that we may endure all, tolerate all,
in the thought of thy grace and mercy.
Send thy peace O Lord, that our lives may become a divine vision,
and in thy light, all darkness may vanish.
Send thy peace O Lord, our father and mother, that we thy children on Earth
may unite in one family.
~ Hazrat Inayat Khan
