You are in a larger sense.
You are deeply important, just as you are, doing just what you do.
Even as your everyday life unfolds as it does, even as you miss the goals you had set or live a life which is seemly mundane, so do you walk a path of great importance in the larger scheme.
Every challenge you face increases not only your own strength and courage, but that of the entire world.
For you are one of the fortunate ones, who is becoming enlightened, who is striving toward light, and as such, every time you overcome the shadows by shining more brightly, you light up the world.
Every time you heal yourself, you heal the world.
Every time you smile, shine with joy, release an old fear, every time you do any of these, the world's burden is lightened.
Every time you choose peace over anger, the world can relax a bit more.

Here is a little prayer for today:
Today, I take each step with joy, knowing that my joy lights up the world.
Today, I take each breath with peace, knowing that my peace creates
peace for all mankind.
Today, I feel my connection with all that is and know that I am an important part of the all, that I make a difference, that I matter deeply.
I am light, peace and joy.
I am love.
I feel this deep within and share it shine out with it, for all to feel and share.
My love is boundless, my peace immense.
I know the power of love and peace and feel it within me.
I am powerful.
I am love.
I am one with all.
