For Belonging

For Belonging
by John O’Donohue

May you listen to your longing to be free.

May the frames of your belonging be generous enough for your dreams.

May you arise each day with a voice of blessing whispering in your heart.

May you find a harmony between your soul and your life.

May the sanctuary of your soul never become haunted.

May you know the eternal longing that lives at the heart of time.

May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.

May you never place walls between the light and yourself.

May you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world to gather you,
mind you, and embrace you in belonging.

  1. I am reading John’s book at the moment (Eternal Echoes) from which this wonderful piece is taken. To discover more about Longing and Belonging folks I’d suggest that you read it. Read too his book Anam Cara, which translates as Soul Friend. 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on The Tromp Queen and commented:
    I have been searching my mind for wise words to share. I keep coming up empty. Fortunately I found these words to share instead. May the New Year be a year of peace, grace and love for each of you.
