Think about the generations of people that have contributed to your biology.
Imagine them now, standing in a line behind you that stretches into the distant past. See them, the men and women, with all their trials and triumphs. Their good deeds and their cruelties. Their joys and sadness’. All of what they were, thought, and have done has been distilled down to you.
Certainly, you have inherited their gifts as well as some other stuff that ain’t so great. In today’s prayer, we acknowledge our ancestors and know that we are here to stop the flow of inherited dysfunctions through recognizing and transmuting them. In doing so, we take up our rightful place in the history of our ancestors, and fulfill our promise to ourselves and to Spirit, to be all that we are meant to be and more.
