Dance, Pray, Love -Benedictus


“Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the music of laughter break through your soul.
.
As the wind wants to make everything dance,
May your gravity be lightened by grace.
.
Like the freedom of the monastery bell,
May clarity of mind make your eyes smile.
.
As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.
.
As silence smiles on the other side of what’s said,
May a sense of irony give you perspective.
.
As time remains free of all that it frames,
May fear or worry never put you in chains.
.
May your prayer of listening deepen enough
To hear in the distance the laughter of God.” — John O’Donohue

(Benedictus - A Book of Blessings)
