“heirs to a harvest”

“There is a quiet light that shines in every heart…This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence here as blessing. We enter the world as strangers who all at once become heirs to a harvest of memory, spirit and dream that has long preceded us and will enfold, nourish and sustain us. The gift of the world is our first blessing.

It would be infinitely lonely to live in a world without blessing…”
—John O’Donohue


note: quotations are taken from the book, Benedictus, by John O’Donahue which I’m currently reading with other books.
