Essene Meditations And Blessings #86

Meditation

This day lies before me,

A newborn child.

What shall this child experience

As it grows from day to night,

From new to old?

Will it be a clone

Of yesterday’s child

And of the day before?

Or is there newness in this day

To match the newness of a child?

Is there joy awaiting

To match the joy of expectation

Twinkling in this newborn eye?

I am the child;

The choice is mine.

The Blessing

Within me lives

The be-er and the do-er,

The meditating monastic

And the builder of temples.

In this season of outward manifestation,

As the rich ripe fruits are gathered,

It is my monk that keeps me centered

As my builder builds castles of love.

How right it is

To work my wonders in the world,

Empowered by the chant

Within.

-Danaan Parry

May God bless and protect you and…
