Blessed by the longing…

Blessed be the longing that brought you here
And quickens your soul with wonder.

May you have the courage to listen to the voice of desire
That disturbs you when you have settled for something safe.

May you have the wisdom to enter generously into
your own unease

To discover the new direction your longing wants
you to take.

May the forms of your belonging — in love, creativity
and friendship —

Be equal to the grandeur and the call of your soul.

Quote: John O’Donohue
