I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire.
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.
Waking up this morning, I smile,
Twenty four brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live fully in each moment
and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
Such a beautiful Sunday morning here at Bealtaine Cottage!
I walked out to greet the day and marvel at the subtle changes in the season.
It is a Benediction each morning here at Bealtaine.
A Benediction is a prayer asking for divine blessing.
My Benediction is a prayer to spread the love of the Great Mother out far and wide.
There are people all over the Earth embracing this Benediction and spreading it further…blessings like little breezes.
The invocation of blessings from the Divine Energy of Mother Earth.
For me,there is a deeply emotional conviction of the presence of the Divine all around this land.
It is shared by the many visitors to Bealtaine.
It is revealed in ways that are quite magical.
Each morning there is another layer of beauty and abundance added.
Instead of an intellectual search, there was suddenly a very deep gut feeling that something was different…seeing that Sun…set in the background of the very deep black and velvety cosmos, seeing – rather, knowing for sure – that there was a purposefulness of flow, of energy, of time, of space in the cosmos – that it was beyond man’s rational ability to understand, that suddenly there was a nonrational way of understanding that had been beyond my previous experience…On the return trip home, gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and the planet from which I had come, I suddenly experienced the universe as intelligent, loving, harmonious.
We need silence to be alone with the Goddess, to listen to her and ponder her words deep in our hearts.
Prayer is the recovery of the souls breathing.
Have a Blessed Day wherever you are with Mother Earth.
