I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.

I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

relating to each other, but not tied in any relationship.

but not being possessive of each other.
They will be sharing with each other
all their joys and all their blessings,
but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.

and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy
in the midst of your challenges.
