A New Year’s Blessing from Teo

On this, the last day of 2012, New Year’s Eve, I offer you these words:

May you look back on the year, and feel a sense pride.

May you remember the strength of your character, the resilience of your spirit, and the inherent worth of your being.

May you know that you are a part of an ecosystem, and that your life is sustained by countless other living things.

May you have gratitude for what has been; for all that you have lost, and all you have gained

May you laugh at your mistakes.

May you forgive yourself, and love yourself.

May you be resolved to be more fully alive in the year to come; more present in your body, in your mind, and in your heart.

And most of all, may you be blessed with unexpected joys, undeniable happiness, and unending compassion in the year to come.

Thanks to all of the readers of Bishop In The Grove for being a part of my life in 2012.




Teo at the end of 2012

    Thank You, Teo, for your wit and wisdom, but most of all, for sharing your human side. Life is a bit less confusing and frightening when you share its foibles with us. I feel truly blessed to have your writing to turn to because it often puts things into perspective.
