New Beginnings – a new year

A clean slate feels good.

Remember the smell of new tablets and pencils at the beginning of a school year when you were very young?

I’m trying to imagine that now as I begin a New Aimless Blog in 2010.

I’ve been reading and enjoying and meditating on John O’Donohue’s poetry and share with you one about Belonging.


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 whis-
pering 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

  1. Somewhere in the beginning of this year, between a difficult space and intense longing to understand more about the immense Love of Christ for our pains and sufferings as we fumble our way through this world of instant gratifications seeking our silence so as to know Him, I came across some work of John O’ Donoghue and fell in love with his gift to know , love and share his silent discoveries of the true meanings of
    Life. So in finding him I celebrated and mourned all at once, but the finding is the gift of light back to understanding the ” fight through the jungle”, and so I thank you God for the gifts given to us through the life of John O’Donoghue. May he rest in the joy that is in the heart of God’s Light.
