Wow... / todo / meditation, modified

...Good Lord, it's been a long time since I've listened to this.


Tuesday: J-net Barcrawl.
Thursday: ECE440 hour exam (oh fuck), ECE410 Biweekly Quiz (Oh fuck, again)
Friday: GER250 Final Essay Initial Draft due (8-13 pages)


I will face the hard and the difficult this week, test and papers, both school and extracurricular: they will be all around. But their numbers and the difficulties they pose does not mean I have to panic and stress. For my own part, I know my path; my ability enables me to get through this. My paw raised against this challenge, prepared to strike. I shall walk through this week as all other walk through their weeks, but seeing and knowing I am not alone, doing my duties as I should; taking one step at a time.

Silently shall I strive to go my way, as They do, doing my work unseen; the light needs no reminding by me of good deeds done by night. And in this long progress through all that is, though I will know doubt and fear in the strange places where I must walk, I will put these both aside, as the Oath requires, and hold myself to my work ... for if They and I together cannot mend what is marred, who can—?

I can.
I will.
I shall.

*This was from the meditation as recited by Rhiow, in one of Diane Duane's books, however, I modified the first bit. The second half (second paragraph here), I left as is.
