May your work excite your heart, kindle in your mind a creativity to journey beyond the old limits of all that has become wearisome.
May this work challenge you toward new frontiers that will emerge as you begin to approach them, calling forth from you the full force and depth of your undiscovered gifts.
May the work fit the rhythms of your soul, enabling you to draw from the invisible new ideas and a vision that will inspire.
Remember to be kind to those who work with you, endeavor to remain aware of the quiet world that lives behind each face.
Be fair in your expectations, compassionate in your criticism.
May you have the grace of encouragement to awaken the gift in the other’s heart, building in them the confidence to follow the call of the gift.
May you come to know that work which emerges from the mind of love will have beauty and form.
May this work be worthy of the energy of your heart and the light of your thought.
May your work assume a proper space in your life instead of owning or using you.
May it challenge and refine you, bringing you every day further into the wonder of your heart.
-John O’Donahue

Why make an account?

Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
