Blessing #25: A Blessing for Old Age

"May the light of your soul mind you. 

 

May all your worry

and anxiousness about your age

Be transfigured. 

 

May you be given wisdom

for the eyes of your soul

To see this as a time of

gracious harvesting. 

May you have the passion

to heal what has hurt you, 

And allow it to come closer

and become one with you. 

 

May you have great dignity, 

And a sense of how free you are; 

Above all, may you be given

the wonderful gift

Of meeting the eternal light

that is within you. 

 

May you be blessed; 

And may you find a wonderful love

In your self for your self."
