Yakut Prayer

by Yakut (Anonymous)




My words are tied in one
With the great mountains,
With the great rocks,
With the great trees,
In one with my body
And my heart.
Do you all help me
With supernatural power,
And you, Day,
And you, Night,
All of you see me
One with the world!

-- from The Essential Mystics: Selections from the World's Great Wisdom Traditions, Edited by Andrew Harvey

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

What a beautiful prayer the Yakut have given to the world (or, perhaps, it is the world that has given it to them). This prayer powerfully evokes unity between the individual and the living totality of nature... The natural world is called upon to give strength, focus, guidance, communion, and finally witness:

All of you see me
One with the world!

A good prayer to carry with you on a walk in the fields or hills or forests. Or even an overgrown lot in the city. Have a beautiful day today, at one with the world!
