Wonderful words from John O'Donohue

This morning I am moved by these words:

"There are no manuals for the construction of the individual you would like to become. You are the only one who can decide this and take up the lifetime of work that it demands. This is such a wonderful privilege and such an exciting adventure. To grow into the person that your deepest longing desires is a great blessing. If you can find a creative harmony between your soul and your life, you will have found something infinitely precious. You may not be able to much about the great problems of the world or change the situation you are in, but if you can awaken the eternal beauty and light of your soul, then you will bring light where you go. The gift of life is given to us for ourselves and also to bring peace, courage and compassion to others."

John O'Donohue
Eternal Echos - Exploring our Hunger to Belong
Bottom paragraph - page 146


This is a timeless piece written for those who struggle with the 'shoulds' of who they need to be. It comes down to the essence of ourselves, the self only you and your angels know who you are - and our job as humans is reveal this light of our beings.  We are here to create harmony between our souls and our lives.

This is our gift to the world - to do what brings light and love to us - and as an extension, to others.

How lucky are we to be in this time in history - where being ourselves is the way, you may have seen this mantra "you do you" - I see this so often.

What does this mean for you?  You do You.  -- I may rephase this to You BE You.

Be You.

Light up your life in such a way you bring peace, courage and compassion to others.

Love to you 💖
