Morning Blessings for the New Year

On this last day of the year, I offer these beautiful, holy, life-giving morning blessings by Dori Midnight.

May you wake tomorrow morning, and every morning thereafter, to awareness and gratitude.  May the new year be filled with good things for you and all you love.  Circulate that around the world, and everyone and their beloved will be blessed.

May the Holy One, LIBERATION WORKER, move us to stretch and expand toward freedom.

May the AWAKENER, Life of all worlds, the GENEROUS CREATRIX, be a healing presence in all our lives.

May 5781 be a year in which we build each other up, hold each other up, dress each other up, and expand the circle of safety, peace, justice, and love in our lives.

Blessed are You, FABULOUS ONE, Who loves each of us just as we are.
