Wishing everyone a very Happy Solstice, Christmas and New Year!
A Druids Blessing for Your Journeys
May the blessing of Light be on you, light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine upon you and warm your heart ’till it glows like a great peat fire, so that the stranger may come and warm himself at it, and also a friend.
And may the light shine out of the two eyes of you like a candle set in two windows of a house, bidding the wanderer to come in out of the storm.
And may the blessing of the rain be on you – the soft sweet rain. May it fall upon your spirit so that all the little flowers may spring up and shed their sweetness on the air.
And may the blessing of the Great Rains be on you. May they beat upon your spirit and wash it fair and clean, and leave there many a shining pool where the blue of heaven shines reflected – and sometimes a star.
And may the blessing of the Earth be on you – the great round earth; may you ever have a kindly greeting for them to pass as you’re going along the roads.
May the earth be soft under you when you lay upon it, tired at the end of the day, and may it rest easy over you when at last you lay out under it. May it rest so lightly over you that your soul may be quickly through it, and up, and off, and on its way to God.
