Reflections from the Dance






When I am hungry, give me someone that I can feed
And when I am thirsty, show me someone who needs drink,
And when I am cold, give me someone to keep warm.
When I grieve, give me someone to console
When my cross grows too heavy and its weight I cannot bear
when I need someone to hold me and it seems no one is there
to lighten up my heavy load, give me someone who deserves to be loved just as I do, give me someone that I can serve.

When I need some time, let me sit with one for a while.
And when my heart is heavy, let me find someone to make smile.
And when I am humbled, give me someone that I can praise
When I need to be looked after, show me someone that I can raise
When I need some understanding, show me someone who needs mine
When I think of myself only, draw my thoughts to those who are kind
and when I am lonely, give me someone who is near
And when my eyes are blind to what is holy
Let me see the divine in the eyes of each one whom I feed
Let me see the divine in each one whom I meet.

(Attributed to Mother Theresa)

 

Navajo Welcoming Prayer
I welcome and honour all that is before me
I welcome and honour all that is behind me
I welcome and honour all that is above me
I welcome and honour all that is below me
I welcome and honour all that is to the left of me
I welcome and honour all that is to the right of me
I welcome and honour all that is within me

 

A Blessing
I arise today
In the name of silence womb of the word
In the name of stillness
Home of belonging
In the name of the solitude
Of the soul and the earth
I arise today
Blessed by all things
Wings of breath
Delight of eyes
Wonder of whisper
Intimacy of touch
Eternity of soul
Urgency of thought
Miracle of health
Embrace of god
May I live this day
Compassionate of heart
Clear in word
Gracious in awareness
Courageous in thought
Generous in love

John O’Donohue
