Sober October 15

Blessing by John John O'Donohue


On the day when
the weight deadens
on your shoulders
and you stumble,
may the clay dance
to balance you.

And when your eyes
freeze behind
the grey window
and the ghost of loss
gets into you,
may a flock of colours,
indigo, red, green
and azure blue,
come to awaken in you
a meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
in the currach of thought
and a stain of ocean
blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters
a path of yellow moonlight
to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.

Getting the deep healing you need can really only come about as you seek sobriety. You can know more and be more aware, and this leads to healing, which can lead to a deeper freedom and peace.

Bill O'Hanlon writes that the 3 Big Keys of Spirituality are Connection, Compassion, and Contribution.  Without these, it probably isn't deep or as true.  I am grateful to him as a mentor.

You can get his book Pathways to Spirituality, here.

"The thoughts of our hearts" is a phrase that I had read and meditated on fairly recently.  I thought that as we explore the deepest thoughts of our hearts, our hearts may finally feel like they are free to share their thoughts, and lead us into a deeper wisdom.
