I Walk In Beauty All Around Me Prayer

Beauty in front of me, Beauty behind me,
Beauty Above me, Beauty below me,
Beauty all around me,
I walk in Beauty…..
In the house of long life, there I wander.
In the house of happiness, there I wander.
Beauty before me,
Beauty behind me,
Beauty above me ,
Beauty below me,
Beauty all around me,
In old age traveling, with it I wander.
On the beautiful trail I am, with it I wander.
In beauty, it is begun,
In beauty, it is finished.


May I Walk In Beauty

There is such majesty in simple words. The idea of gratitude and the understanding that each of us belongs in this life as much as do the sun, moon and the stars. This poem prayer from the Navajo Blessingway shows each of us that when we can take the time to appreciate the wonder of the universe we live in, that our hearts allow their songs to be heard in all their glory.

Such simple words, such a simple idea. The peace that comes with understanding that we do belong in the world, that we are a part of the Universe, that our lives are precious, is one that is beyond description.

In our day to day lives, we sometimes go too fast to be able to see the blurring beauty of the world as we run by. Take a moment just for today, just for that smallest of times in between inhale and exhale, to see the beauty of the world around us.

      Thank you, Jeffrey. Its a beautiful spot on Martha’s Vineyard. Taking a moment, maybe even a couple of moments is a great part of life. 🙂

    This is a lovely poem! I think the idea of your poem is that all god had created that surrounds us is beautiful. We always need to appreciate what god had created and take care of its beauty. Nice picture! 🙂
