Matt Kahn’s Essential Key of Intention

“May I
no matter what comes my way
be more loving
thoughtful
gentle
and courageous
through my words
and actions
for the well-being of all
May every breath
awaken every heart
may every step
return all beings to safety
may every bite of food
nourish all families
my every bring of my eyes
return the earth to peace
may everything I hear
be the sound of consciousness awakening
may everything I see
reveal the growing pains
of the divine’s highest destiny emerging
into the beauty of human form
may every interaction I have
reveal the truth of my being
and even when I encounter those
who don’t treat me the way I intend to be
I can just remember
their actions don’t have to symbolize
anything about me
instead their actions symbolize
how tremendous of a healing journey
they may be on
and may not even know it
and so even when I encounter others
who do not act in accordance with my intention
it doesn’t have to symbolize anything about me
it simply symbolizes how deep of a journey they’re on
and even when I encounter beings like that
I can use it as an opportunity to set another intention
and simply say
may I be
for myself and them
whatever appears missing in this encounter
and then instantly
I am no longer lacking
or needing someone else to change
because I can always intend to become
for myself and others
what seems missing in the encounters I have
for the well-being of all
as I am now.”
