Spiritual Benedictions

*Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others......; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass....nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe....the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. Go in peace.

*Nourished by understanding

Warmed by friends

Fed by loved ones

Matured by wisdom

Tempered by tears

Made holy by caring and sharing

Be blessed always

Go forth in peace!
