I came across this exquisite piece of writing in a delightful goddess newsletter crafted by Anita Revel and I just had to share it with you! These kaliedoscopic bits are exerpts from a prayer written by Rob Brezsny, sure to super-charge the sleepy and skeptical:

"Dear Goddess, You who never kill but only change:
I pray that my exuberant, suave and accidental words will move you to shower ferocious blessings down on everyone who reads this benediction.I pray that you will give them what they don't even know they want - not just the boons they think they need but everything they've always been afraid to even imagine or ask for.
Dear Goddess, You wealthy anarchist burning heaven to the ground:
Many of the divine chameleons out there don't even know that their souls will live forever. So please use your blinding magic to help them see that they are all wildly creative geniuses too big for their own personalities.Guide them to realize that they are all completely different from what they think they are and more exciting than they can possibly imagine.
Make it illegal, immoral, irrelevant, unpatriotic and totally tasteless for them to be in love with anyone or anything that's no good for them.
Dear Goddess, You psychedelic mushroom cloud at the center of all our brains:
The curiously divine human beings reading this prayer deserve everything they are yearning for and much, much more. So please bless them with lucid dreams while they are wide awake and solar-energy-operated sex toys that work even in the dark and vacuum cleaners for their magic carpets and a knack for avoiding other people's hells and their very own 900 number so that everyone has to pay to talk to them and a secret admirer who is not a psychotic stalker.
Dear Goddess, You fiercely tender, hauntingly reassuring, orgiastically sacred feeling that is even now running through all of our soft, warm animal bodies:
I pray that you provide everyone out there with a license to bend and even break all rules, laws and traditions that keep them apart from the things they love.Show them how to purge the wishy-washy wishes that distract them from their daring, dramatic, divine desires.And teach them that they can have anything they want if they'll only ask for it in an unselfish way."
AH! That makes me want to dance around wearing something purple! Perfect words for the upcomming New Moon--time to clear out the old, cleanse, make new plans and manifest like mad! What will your daring, dramatic, devine desires be?
Until Next Time--
Much Joy and Merry Making!~*
