by John O’Donohue

May the light of your soul guide you;
May the light of your soul bless the work you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart;
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul;
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work;
May your work never weary you;
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement; May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences; May the day never burden;
May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises;
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled;
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected;
May your soul calm, console and renew you.”
