That's such a profound prayer, nollaig, I'd love to recite it at Lughnasadh celebrations tomorrow. I will give full credit to the originators of it. :)

Marvelous! I think I'll add this to my personal journal.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.

Thank you, nollaig.

It is beautiful, wise and humble.

I shall use it at Harvest Home (Alban Elfed) when I appraise, take stock and repair my life in the run up to meeting the ancestors at Samhain (some positive introspection, remorse, reconciliation, recommitment and raised spirituality never goes amiss). The prayer will start the journey perfectly.
