For Belonging

by John O’ Donohue

May you listen to your longing to be free.

May the frames of your belonging be generous

enough for your dreams.

May you arise each day with a voice of blessing

whispering in your heart.

May you find a harmony between your soul and

your life.

May the sanctuary of your soul never become


May you know the eternal longing that lives at the

heart of time.

May there be kindness in your gaze when you look


May you never place walls between the light and


May you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world

to gather you, mind you, and embrace you in


You can find this poem in To Bless the Space Between Us.
