A Druids Blessing.
“May the blessing of light be on you, light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine upon you and warm your heart till it glows,
like a great turf fire, so that the stranger may come
and warm himself at it, as well as the friend.
May the light shine out from your eyes,
like a candle set in the windows of a house,
bidding the wanderer to come in out of the storm.
May the blessing of the rain be on you - the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit so that all the little flowers may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.
May the strength of the wind bless you as it carries the rain to wash your spirit clean and leave behind a sparkling pool that shines like a star.
May the blessing of the earth be on you - the great round earth;
soft under your feet as you pass along the roads, soft under you as you lie out on it, tired at the end of day.
May you ever have a kindly greeting for people you pass
as you are going along the roads."
May you understand the strength and power of Mother Nature, in a thunderstorm in winter or the quiet beauty of creation, the calm of a summer sunset or the sound of a babies sigh.
May you come to realise that as small as you are in the scheme of things you are an important part of the wheel.
May the Gods/Goddesses watch over you and keep you safe from all harm.
