Let all things be exactly as they are.
1. Let me not be Your critic, Lord, today, and judge against You. 2Let me not attempt to interfere with Your creation, and distort it into sickly forms. 3Let me be willing to withdraw my wishes from its unity, and thus to let it be as You created it. 4For thus will I be able, too, to recognize my Self as You created me. 5In love was I created, and in love will I remain forever. 6What can frighten me, when I let all things be exactly as they are?
2. Let not our sight be blasphemous today, nor let our ears attend to lying tongues. 2Only reality is free of pain. 3Only reality is free of loss. 4Only reality is wholly safe. 5And it is only this we seek today.
