“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful,
full of wonder and excitement.
It is our misfortune that for most of us,
that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct
for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring,
is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.”

Solitude…

May you recognize in your life the presence,
power, and light of your soul.

May you realize that  you are never alone,
that  your soul in its brightness and belonging
connects you intimately with the rhythm
of the universe.

May you have respect for your own individuality
and difference.

May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
that behind the façade of your life
there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening.

May you learn to see yourself
with the same delight, pride, and expectation
with which God sees you in every moment.
~John O’Donohue
