Worthiness (Psalm 30)

My Lady, I give you praise

   lift me out of the depths

   and do not let my despair consume me.

My God, I call to you for help

   heal me.

My Mother, save me from ruination;

   do not abandon me.

I sing with the rest of the wholly holy to our Mother;

   And give her praise.

She holds nothing against us,

   and loves us unconditionally;

   I remember, that no matter how dark the night,

   there is always a dawn.

With her mercy and protection

   I feel safe and secure,

   I rest assured

My Lady, you have awakened my soul

   and made me fierce and free;

   I am vulnerable, though,

   and that fills me with fear and doubt .

I call to you, my Mother;

   I need your mercy and protection:

Please help me to be one with your beauty,

   and keep me from tumbling in the surf,

give me the courage, strength, and patience

   to be faithful.

Hear me, I am here;

   please dear mother, be my safe harbor

Turn my brooding ache into delicious hope;

   take away the hurt and give me equanimity,

Help me listen to the inaudible moans of your presence,   

and relax in your breath of life.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
