For Presence

By August 11, 2014July 12th, 2023Beneath the Willow Tree

Awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence

Have joy and peace in the temple of your senses,

Receive encouragement when new frontiers beckon

Respond to the call of your gift and the courage to follow its path

Let the flame of anger free you from all falsity

May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame

May anxiety never linger about you

May your own dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul

Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention

Be consoled in the symmetry of your soul

May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder

By John O’Donohue.
