Shiva, my refuge & my beloved! i am for You & You alone! You have shown me that every well-intentioned, upbeat & constructive thought & feeling is nourishment for the divine forces of light, for angels & devas & gods, for the well-being of countless blessed beings & worlds. You have shown me how they flourish & deepen in goodness & in service. You have also revealed to me that every negative & hate-filled thought is food & fuel for the forces of darkness, for demons & devils & the sly covert undermining of innocent, good & pure beings. therefore i no longer indulge in angry, bitter, resentful feelings nor linger in dim dull grey gloom or wearisome comparative thinking, for i myself may then become an infectious contagion to others. thus it is, Shiva, that i will focus on You & the many blessings which continually urge me toward my greatest unfolding goodness. i seek to prepare a banquet of joy for angels & devas & gods that the beauty of kindness & the gentle caring heart may be present. i rejoice in the generous abundance of nature, the sky, the sun, oceans, rivers, mountains, valleys & their varied populations. may heartfelt gratitude & sincere appreciation pour forth freely, like honey from the honeycomb & cool refreshing rain from the heavens! Shiva, my refuge & my beloved! i am for You & You alone! we nourish the manvantara by pouring out our love relentlessly.
