Caressing the distance between us


A Blessing

May you recognize in your life
the presence, and power, and light, of your soul.

May you realize you are never alone
but your soul in its brightness and belonging,
connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.

May you learn respect for your own individuality and difference and realize that the shape of your soul is unique and that you have a special destiny here.
And behind the façade of your life that 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.
