Really? Yes, really, some days are like that, and you know it Beloved. Some days if we were to witness our own behaviors or desires or mean feelings or thoughts of cruelty, we would want to back away slowly and shut the door on such. And yet so many of us have those days, when we go ahead and act out and not up, when we falter and fail in kindness, when we are motivated by greed and fear and unable to lean a little bit toward our better selves. Help us, Beloved, have fewer of those days, and when we meet others who are struggling with their lesser selves, help us help them into a different way. May we all have fewer of those days when we would look askance at others or ourselves, and instead lean more steadily into kindness and into love. Amen.
