May you craft a life that honors
the deep longing for love and meaning
with delight in the human, the holy,
and spacious friendship with your soul.
May you remain open to the secret ways
that come to you in dreams,
with a keen ear for the soul's wisdom
and a heart that trusts the unknown.
And if your life ever darkens or narrows,
allow your soul's grace to guide you
and remind you in times of sorrow
to breathe kindness into your days.
May you receive the gifts your soul gives you,
and share them in love and oneness,
knowing the sweet joy of living
from the essence of your being.
