    Oh! Great Goddess and Great Spirit for they are all a part of CHI, thank you for guiding me thus far on my life's journey.

    Guide me this day spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically that I may be in tune with thee and learn the lessons thou has to teach me that I may be in tune with thee and learn the lessons tho has to teach me that I may know the interconnection of all things in thy seamless web of life where everything belongs and nothing is lost and becoming, transformation, regeneration, mutation, evolution and change are the way of all things.

    Oh! Great Goddess and Great Spirit for they are all part of CHI, let me always be aware that the web that connects each to me weaves its tapestry throughout my being uniting me with all for separateness is an illusion for all are one.

    And let me always be aware that we are all prisoners of preconditioning and only through self discipline, meditation and self cultivation can we break free of those prisons so we may find our spiritual path and grow in enlightenment and spirituality.

    And let me always rest content in the arms of the unfolding universe.

    Regardless what you call it, it is still religion; may be soothing for the mind, but far from reality as any religion.

    Dutch, one was joking.

    and some of the eastern stuff with a focus on the inter-connectedness of life, all life, is similar to the system of the whole in the political, economic, sociological, psychological, biological view one holds.
