A Blessing For the Senses


This is a beautiful blessing from the incredible John O’Donohue, and is perfect for the sensous exploration of the world that I try to foster and encourage through Sensing Life:

A Blessing for the Senses

– John O’Donohue, from  “Anam Cara”

May your body be blessed.
May you realize that your body is a faithful
and beautiful friend of your soul.
And may you be peaceful and joyful
and recognize that your senses
are sacred thresholds.
May you realize that holiness is
mindful, gazing, feeling, hearing, and touching.
May your senses gather you and bring you home.
May your senses always enable you to
celebrate the universe and the mystery
and possibilities in your presence here.
May the Eros of the Earth bless you.
