power and light of your soul.

May you realize that you are never alone, that your soul in its brightness and belonging

connects you intimately with the rhythm of the


May you have respect for your own individuality and


May you realize that the shape of your soul is

unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the facade of your life

there is something beautiful and eternal happening.

May you learn to see your self

with the same delight,

pride, and expectation

with which God sees you in every moment.
