Help us to stay in some kind of touch with reality—with the real reality.
Help us to grow in our awareness of
who you truly are,
who we truly are,
and—though it may be too much to ask—
who others truly are.
Help us to break through or to squirm through all the stuff that we come up with to try to hide ourselves
from ourselves, and
from each other.
Maybe we can’t take the really real.
But give us the desire and the courage to move toward it anyway.
