Blessing





A Blessing for the Unique Shape of  Your Soul
May you recognize in your life,
the presence and power and light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone,
but that your soul,
in it’s brightness and belonging
connects you intimately
with the rhythm of the universe.
 May you have respect for own your individuality, and difference
And may you realize that the shape of  your soul is unique,
That you have a special destiny here,
And that behind the façade of your life
There is something beautiful and good
 and eternal happening in you. 
May you learn to see yourself
with the same delight
 and pride and happiness
with which  God 
sees you
in every moment.
~John O'Donohue



If you realized how beautiful you are,
you would fall at your own feet. 
 ~Byron Katie

It is the anniversary of the birth of my daughter and the death of a dear friend,
this was in my mailbox and it spoke to me.

Blessings on your day! xxxx

  4. Beautiful writing. I had never heard of John O'Donohue so, of course, had to look him up. What a remarkable educational background he had. How sad that he died so young.

    Happy birthday to your daughter and condolences on the passing of your friend.
