This was originally written as a “Wedding Blessing” to a charming and talented young couple on 10/10/04.
As I rediscover this blessing, which was written , almost 10 years ago, I recognise within it, a blessing to my beloved of another age, an age which is forthcoming, a time of peace, of happiness, and of true love.
The original Wedding Blessing has been almost totally revised and has emerged as something incredibly lovely.
The last 8 words remain the same in both blessings; parts of the original blessing to that young couple are contained in this new version.
A Blessing for “US”
This is my wish for you, my darling, for our life together, for our wedded bliss, for the “us” which has already been, and which will be once again and again, eternally.
I wish us mornings bathed in sunlight, warmed by our voices speaking of eternity.
I wish us a pristine union of ease and grace, of our universes happily coalescing.
I wish you the joy, again and again, of the pilgrimage that brought us the reward of togetherness in this Promised Land once again.
I wish you the feeling of Gratitude, overflowing everywhere, nourishing and awakening all of life.
I wish you a compassionate embrace of past, present, and future.
I wish you Love’s Dominion bonded to the Soul of God, in total completeness that you may know at once the reverence of joy and the victory of breaking new ground into the Holy Age.
