Prayers For Meg

Breast cancer.

Got to have chemo.


You might want to Gift yourself with Thich Nhat Hanh's book No death, no fear (Riverhead Books, Penguin Putnam Inc., 2002). This is a song he has written (and includes in the book) that can be used as a guided meditation:

"This body is not me; I am not caught in this body,

I am life without boundaries,

I have never been born and I have never died.

Over there the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies

All manifests from the basis of consciousness.

Since beginningless time I have always been free.

Birth and death are only a door through which we go in and out.

Birth and death are only a game of hide-and-seek.

So smile to me and take my hand and wave good-bye.

Tomorrow we shall meet again or even before.

We shall always be meeting again at the true source,

Always meeting again on the myriad paths of life."

You can substitute "body, birth, death" with "cancer", "chemotherapy", "nausea", "pity", etc. to suit each moment that you encounter.

If you are more mathematically minded, I have written these formulas that have been helpful to many "left" brains:

You are Safe right now + it is Always "right now" = You are Always Safe.

Everything is OK right now + it is Always "right now" = Everything is Always going to be OK.

Sink Not Swim

If you find yourself

in a boat on the sea: sailing into the

unknowable night,

just be in the boat.

If you find yourself

in a storm on the sea: tossed and battered,

cold and afraid,

just be in the storm.

If you find yourself

thrown into the sea: just be in the sea.

-S. West (from For My Friends, Big Nose Books, 2008)

"Moses cried out to Adonai saying, 'G-d, I pray, please heal her (Ayl nah refah nah lah)'."

This prayer is still said and used today in Jewish healing services.

And I add this from Psalm 29 -

יְהוָה--עֹז, לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן; יְהוָה, יְבָרֵךְ אֶת-עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.

Adonai will grant strength to His people. Adonai will bless His people with peace.



Thank you all.

Rabbi O, the Hebrew looks beautiful.

Would you mind translating?
