Exemplar Ritual 9
Exemplar Ritual 9 Inner Beauty and Eternal Love//Come forward now into the light which represents the Gem of Light within yourself, the diamond radiance of eternal love; and standing there. Let each pray in her own way that as the planets are guided in their eternal paths, we may be guided that we may exemplify the high ideals of our sisterhood; that we may be helped to worship by honest work, by willing service, by kind words, and useful deeds; that we may be helped to find life good by doing something to make it good, by advancing with strong heart, firm step, and generous hand.//That we may be taught pure ideals, true thoughts, and noble endeavor --- trusting when we cannot prove and proving when we cannot trust. If our thoughts are dark, may the glory of the stars shine in upon them; and if they be bright, make them to light the pathway of our fellowmen.//May there be added to the beauty of the world about us a finer spiritual beauty within our souls. If there be anything unlovely in our life, may we be helped to seek beneath it for the hidden beauty and this bring to light. May the light shine through us to those that live in the shadow, and so fill us with radiant spirit that we may be a light unto out neighbor's feet and light unto his path. Let us ask that all the ecstatic and abounding Life of the Universe, which is older than antiquity, help us find a new life at every dawn. Let us ask to have generated in us a more abundant life, unquenchable and ever lovely. Let us ask that we may be granted more of life, light, and love, for in receiving these we receive all. Let us beseech that we may be Exemplars in TRUTH. Amen.//So let thy light shine as thou dost go forth to again join thy sisters.
