Blessing #22: A Celebration Blessing

"Now is the time

to free the heart, 

Let all intentions and worries stop, 

Free the joy inside the self, 

Awaken to the wonder

of your life. 


Open your eyes and see the friends

Whose hearts recognize your face as kin,

Those whose kindness watchful and near, 

Encourages you to live everything here. 


See the gifts the years have given, 

Things your effort could never earn, 

The health to enjoy who you want to be

And the mind to mirror mystery."
