It’s the holiday season!
A wonderful time to appreciate the goodness of life, as we exchange gifts and blessings.
“It would be infinitely lonely to live in a world without blessing”, writes John O’Donohue in To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings.
He introduces the book with a reminder:
“There is a quiet light that shines in every heart. It draws no attention to itself, though it is always secretly there. It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire to seek possibility, and our hearts to love life.
Without this subtle quickening our days would be empty and wearisome, and no horizon would ever awaken our longing. Our passion for life is quietly sustained from somewhere in us that is wedded to the energy and excitement of life.
This shy inner light is what enables us to recognise and receive our very presence here as blessing. We enter the world as strangers who all at once become heirs to a harvest of memory, spirit, and dream that has long preceded us and will now enfold, nourish and sustain us.
The gift of the world is our first blessing.”
The author’s first benediction — and my wish for us this Christmas:
“May we all receive blessing upon blessing.
And may we realize our power to bless, heal, and renew one another.”
