For the past few months I’ve been re-reading Simple Abundance, A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach. It has been a blessing to have stumbled upon this book once more, and thought how appropriate it would be to end this year, 2011, with the last entry of her book (December 31st).
This last bit has resonated with me so much, I decided to place an excerpt here.. so right, in my opinion, for many of us to move into the New Year.
“Pray your journey be a long one. Savor the stops along the way. They make the search marvelous. Meaningful. Memorable. Find and honor our own pace. There are still so many harbors to be seen for the first time. you’re headed for someplace you’ve never been before. Keep your thoughts held high. Let personal passions stir your mind, body and spirit.
Set your course to Authentica. Legend has it that once your reach her shores, you’ll not leave the same woman. FOr it you find this sacred isle, you will remember what you have always known. You will discover the woman you’ve always been. No longer will you see things as they are. You will see things as YOU are. Through the parting of the mists where doubt and faith meet, you will see the authentic self is the Soul made visible.
So as 2011 ends and 2012 begins… The passage will not be felt, but the continuous movement towards my wise self will followed by light, forwarded by love and entered with faith so strong nothing will stop who I have become!
Happy Prosperous Journey into 2012 my friends.
