Winter is past, Spring is here, and with Spring comes new life, new energy and renewed hope in a better world for all beings. May these blessings offer comfort and bring you a sense of peace.
A Blessing for Solace and Hope: This is a blessing for solace, the comfort that comes in the form of good fortune, strange little moments that bring you back to the sense that the Universe is a place where you are cared for, considered and important, and that this solace brings you hope for the future, and anticipation of the fair things that life will continue to bring you.
Solace is the balm and the antidote to the wounds that life can deliver. It is not personal, for being here is a great gift, and we live in times where, in many ways, we are safer than we have ever been before. But we are fed a diet of hopelessness from our cultures and media sources, until we become over-whelmed with the troubles that seem to surround us. This blessing is for you, for you to find your way to sweetness. For the flower in the bud to release its sweetness, for you to notice the shimmer of light upon water, the sheer pleasure of movement, the ease of a mind no longer racing over problems to be solved, but soft, intelligent, allowing the calm of life to steal back into your soul.
This is the solace that keeps our hopes alive, the gift of good fortune that reawakens the candle of optimism that is within us, and the delight in the sheer whimsy of being here and being alive. It is the understanding that there may be little control, but we are no mere pawns in this life – we have our place in the world, and simply with our breathing in and out, we matter, and we are doing enough.
To find solace is to find peaceful moments, small connections, to notice the thousand gifts life has conferred upon us, and it is to again invoke the divinity of existence, without the fear of the future. Let hope give you lightness, draw aways the pain, and open you up again to the possibilities, until you begin to once again relish the simple voluptuous truth of being alive.
