a blessing for the senses…


may your body be blessed.
may you realize that your body is a faithful and beautiful
friend of your soul.
and may you be peaceful and joyful and recognize that your senses are sacred thresholds.
may you realize that holiness is mindful, gazing, feeling,
hearing, and touching.
may your senses gather you and bring you home.
may your senses always enable you to celebrate the universe
and the mystery and possibilities in your presence here.
may the eros of the earth bless you.

~ john o’donahue from anam cara

anam cara means *soul friend*…and to me these are the people that appear in your life that are kindred spirits – you may know them the instant you meet them, or perhaps your love for each other grows over time. but these are the people you can’t imagine living your life without. the connection is deep and lasting…

do you have an anam cara?
