A Blessing for Belonging:
When absence becomes your companion
and the feeling that something is missing
demands your care and devotion
let yourself befriend your longing
and respond to its voice leading you home to belonging.
Nurture your courage
and expand your capacity
to share your true self generously.
Trust that you can be understood deeply
by those who take the time to listen.
Develop a practice of cherishing others.
Ask them about their dreams.
Invite them to share their joys.
Make a space for their longing to be heard.
The practice starts by doing this for yourself.
from earthy and wholesome sources.
Encourage rest after being with others.
May you grow in your ability to bless yourself.
