The arms of the Goddess enfold me.
Held within these loving arms, I have all I need.
She gives me green meadows to lie in,
still waters to reflect the flow of life.
When my soul is weary, she feeds it with her strength and beauty
and the memory that we are connected.
She shows me the path that I may choose to the greatest good
for I am in her image, I am her namesake, she dwells within me.
Though I may walk through dark valleys, no evil can harm my soul
for she is ever with me.
I feel the comfort of her loving guidance
in both delight and in unpleasant consequences.
She prepares a feast of nourishing opportunities for me and all of my relations,
for we all have gifts to offer each other when we gather together in community.
She has anointed me with unique gifts
that I might share for the nourishment of my fellow souls.
My cup is full to overflowing
so that I always have enough to help fill the cups of others.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness shall walk with me all my days
and I shall live in her love forever.
