We are in a period of unprecedented, challenging and exciting change. In all areas, old structures are falling away or being challenged, including in the field of religion and spirituality. More and more people are undertaking an individual spiritual quest for their right spiritual niche. This blessing is for them.
I bless them in their courage to break away from old moorings that keep them in stagnant waters and to embark onto the unchartered territories of their soul and the moving seas of spiritual adventure.
I bless them in their firm determination to continue seeking until they find the pearl of great price and the “peace that passes all understanding.”
I bless them, above all else, in their ability to be true to themselves, wherever it may take them and to hold firm to their vision whatever the pressures from family, friends, religious bodies and “authorities” of all sorts to conform.
POST SCRIPTUM: the following quotation is by my dear friend Roger W. McGowen, who found his spiritual path on death row where he spent 25 years for a crime of which many, his lawyer and I included, are absolutely certain he is totally innocent. Roger has become a spiritual guide for many, me included.
“We are what we are looking for. We seek what has not been lost. “
