For the Class of 2021

A Prayer for a New Beginning

From: To Bless the Space Between Us by John O’Donohue

In out-of-the-way places of your heart,

Where your thoughts never think to wander,

This beginning has been quietly forming,

Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,

Feeling the newness growing inside you,

Noticing how you willed yourself on,

Still unable to leave what you had outgrown

It watched you play with the seduction of safety

And the grey promises that sameness whispered

Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent

Wondered if you would always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled

And out you stepped onto new ground,

Your eyes young again with energy and dream

A path of plentitude opening before you

Though your destination is not yet clear

You can trust the promise of this opening;

Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning

That is at one with your life’s desire

Awaken your spirit to adventure;

Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;

Soon you will be home in a new rhythm

For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

AMEN!

Happy Earth Week!

Celebrate Creation!
