"Our longing for the eternal kindles our imagination to bless. Regardless of how we configure the eternal, the human heart continues to dream of a state of wholeness, that place where everything comes together, where loss will be made good, where blindness will transform into vision, where damage will be made whole, where the clenched question will open in the house of surprise, where the travails of life's journey will enjoy a homecoming. To invoke a blessing is to call some of that wholeness upon a person now."
from Bless the Space Between Us
I reached into a box of watercolor pads today and put my hands on a thin spiral pad with a plain, unattractive cover. I thought to myself, "no, not this one" but I lifted it higher and opened it to a page I had, in very neat, very tiny, black words, written the poem "May the light of your soul guide you". And I thought, "Thank you". That was the message I needed to remember this very moment and thank you John O'Donohue for your love.
