May this day be a blessed one for you
Blessing all that is
Beneath us, within us, above and all around us
As I walk the valley below Abadiania in Goais, Brazil each morning, I am awed by the beauty of sky and land. As far as the eye can see there is only mist and rolling hills lush with the new green of the rainy season. All is silent except for the call of toucans, macaw and parrots chattering with their mates. Even the cows who often wander with me remain still as the dawn breaks over the horizon. I cannot help but offer up prayers of gratitude and thanks. No matter what lies ahead, the dawn is forever pregnant with promise. Greeting it in reverence for all its potential and possibilities is to be born anew each day.
