May you awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
May you respond to the call of your gift
and find the courage to follow its path.
May the flame of anger free you from falsity.
May the warmth of your heart keep your presence aflame
and anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that
seek no attention.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven
around the heart of wonder.
John O’Donohue, Eternal Echoes ~ ( Irish poet~philosopher~spiritual teacher)
