"We are like waves on the Ocean of Belonging. We may think that we are separate, but it is really all we are." ~Postcards from the Landscape of Joy

Body blessing

by Ingrid Goff-Maidoff
From Good Mother, Welcome

Your body is a miracle of nature.
Your body is strong.
Your body is sensual.
Your body is a life source.
Your body is love, compassion,
beauty, wisdom...
Your body
is one of the Great Mother's bodies.
Your body is of the earth,
and the spirit.
Your body is a temple.
Your body is a life spring.
Your body houses a beautiful soul.
Your body is magnificent.
