May the light of your soul guide you
by John O'Donohue

May the light of your soul guide you.
May the light of your soul bless the work
You do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those
Who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden you.
May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams,
Possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

-- from Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom, by John O'Donohue
Poetry Chaikhana | John O'Donohue - May the light of your soul guide you

I learn that John O'Donohue was, among other things a "Roman" Catholic priest.  He was also a purveyor of his native Celtic culture, which i do not share, but greatly admire.  Pelagianism was declared heretical  over 1500 years ago; but Pelagius was just an early British Christian trying to express his faith within a Celtic rather than a Latin context.  "Pelagianism" was alive and well through O'Donohue's prose and poetry.
