    Source of All Worlds
    For the sake of all beings
    Slay my hidden faults.

    Dispell the darkness.
    Sever the root of my conceit.
    Forgive my cruel acts.

    My Beloved,
    Direct my practice inward
    to the Shining Path.

    Most Divine, offer
    Healing to those who suffer.
    ...rest to the weary.

    Light of Perfection,
    Source of all accomplishment,
    Pure and infinite.

    Show me the golden
    Shore of the Liberated...
    as vast as the sky.

    My Only Refuge,
    May I dwell in the presence
    of your Perfect Love.

    [email protected]....thank you, dearest......actually it's a poem I made in the form of Sufi prayers...more Eastern than "church".....

    watz...that is true...im actually shocked anyone even noticed this one, seeing as such it aint bout "love" or "sex"...
    actually it is about love...a different type, tho...but I thank you.
