A Blessing for the Journey

This morning a gathering of good and generous souls set me in their midst and laid their gentle hands upon me.  A sacred blessing and many heartfelt salutations;  a sense of serenity and holiness pervades and sustains as I make the first step on this long-awaited journey:

Here I am,
I’m waiting for a better day
A second chance
A little luck to come my way
A hope to dream, a hope that I can sleep again
And wake in the world with a clear conscience and clean hands
‘Cause all that you have is your soul
So don’t be tempted by the shiny apple
 Don’t you eat of a bitter fruit
Hunger only for a taste of justice
Hunger only for a world of truth
‘Cause all that you have is your soul

                            – Tracy Chapman 

Thank you IUCC – you are my forever family

  1. Wow…you are really on your way! I can’t believe you are gone, and I can’t believe I let you go! Wow…
    I want this time to be the very best for you to grow, serve, witness, believe, and live joyfully knowing that you are living peace by taking this journey. May God bless you and keep you, may that love sustain you and hold you until we are together again. The 14th Dali Lama said, “Life is not a race but a journey to be savored each step of the way. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift.” Journey on my friend…enjoy the gift. I love you Yvette.
