Morning

A Morning Offering

I bless the night that nourished my heart
To set the ghosts of longing free
Into the flow and figure of dream
That went to harvest from the dark
Bread for the hunger no one sees.

All that is eternal in me
Welcome the wonder of this day,
The field of brightness it creates
Offering time for each thing
To arise and illuminate.

I place on the altar of dawn:
The quiet loyalty of breath,
The tent of thought where I shelter,
Wave of desire I am shore to
And all beauty drawn to the eye.

May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography
That invites me to new frontiers,
To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
To risk being disturbed and changed.

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for

And waste my heart on fear no more.


Quote: John O’Donohue

What else do we need?

Inner stillness

“In the inner stillness where meditation leads, the Spirit secretly anoints the soul and heals our deepest wounds.”

Quote: St John of The Cross

Thankful…

A day to wake up and count your blessings. No one can name the way you are blessed better than you.

Like the adage – ‘the grass is always greener on the other side.’ – people can look at you and list the blessings they see or think they understand but you are the only one that can count the blessings you hold deep within your heart.

Wake up and begin this day grateful for all of that makes your life richer and brings you joy. This is a list that only you can make.

A new day – may it reveal all the things that brings joy and gratitude into your life.
