Bernardo Bernardo: “A Prayer of Abundance” for Lorna Dietz, not for Tia Carrere or Apl.d. Ap of Black Eyed Peas

Bernardo Bernardo & Apl.d. Ap of Black-Eyed Peas at the Fil-Am Library’s Centennial Celebration, October 2006One of the most remarkable human beings I have ever met in my lifetime — and there are more remarkable ones waiting for me to meet! — is the Philippines-United States’ compleat performer and entertainer, Bernardo Bernardo. We have a way of finding each other once a year, or even once every couple of years, to check in — and exchange personal and professional notes.

Bernardo Bernardo & Tia Carrere at Fil-Am Library’s Centennial Celebration, October 2006One day, a couple of years ago, I was crying my heart out. Bernardo wanted to comfort me with a prayer so he sent me one in an e-mail. I lovingly posted this prayer on my refrigerator, complete with a “photoshopped” picture of both of us (with radiant smiles, of course!). Bernardo’s words keep me grounded, giving me such reassurance that “I am perfect and complete as I am”.

Bernardo might have composed this prayer at his most meditative state of mind, sending it to me as fast as he could, because he misplaced his personal copy.

Well, Bernardo, I finally got to delete this to-do item in my checklist. I am sending your prayer of abundance out into the Universe. May you find this wonderful prayer (that you composed) as a blessing wherever your travels take you!

Godspeed, my friend!

Bernardo’s Prayer of Abundance

I pray for greater receptivity on our part to accept GOD’S blessings which are ever-flowing, constantly pouring upon us.
Let us open up our heart and our mind, and receive!
Claim it, for it is ours, by Divine Right — all the good, beauty, truth, and abundance in the Universe.
Ours, for we are HIS children.
Receiving, that is Enlightenment!
