A Blessing for Solitude
May you realize that you are never alone,
that your soul in its brightness and belonging
connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.
May you have respect for your individuality and difference.
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
that behind the façade of your life
there is something beautiful and eternal happening.
May you learn to see your self
with the same delight,
pride, and expectation
with which God sees you in every moment.
One of my favorite blessings from John O’Donohue’s book To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings.
Try your hand at writing a blessing for someone. I’ll share some of mine later.
