Im Samenladen

Ein junger Mann träumte davon, einen ungewöhnlichen Laden zu betreten.
Hinter der Theke begrüßte ihn ein Engel.

Interessiert fragt er ihn: Was verkaufst Du?
Der Engel antwortete ihm freundlich: Alles, was Du willst.
Der junge Mann begann, seine Wünsche aufzuzählen:
Dann hätte ich gerne [...]
➤ das Ende aller Kriege auf der Welt,
➤ bessere Bedingungen für die Randgruppen der Gesellschaft,
➤ Aufhebung der Elendsviertel in Lateinamerika,
➤ Arbeit für die Arbeitslosen, und [...] und [...] und


Der Engel fiel ihm schließlich ins Wort:
Entschuldige, du hast mich nicht richtig verstanden.
Wir verkaufen keine Früchte, wir verkaufen nur den Samen.

  • Segnen Sie ein Ding, und es wird Sie segnen. Verfluchen Sie es [das Schicksal], und es wird Sie verfluchen. Wenn Sie irgendetwas in Ihrem Leben mit Ihrer Schelte belegen, wird es zurückschlagen und Sie treffen. Eine Situation, die wir begrüßen, hat keine Macht [Bezwingungsmacht] uns zu verletzen, und selbst wenn sie uns eine Zeit lang beschwerlich erscheint, wird sie, wenn Sie sie segnen, allmählich verblassen. Emmet Fox (1886-1951) irischer Neugeist-Lehrer, Führer der Neugeist-Bewegung in New York City, Autor, Die Kraft der universellen Energie, Peter Erd Verlag, 2. Taschenbuchauflage 1. Januar 1989

        A BLESSING       

May the light of your soul guide you.
May the light of your soul bless the work
You do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring
healing, light and renewal to those
Who work with you and to those
who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment,
inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden you.
May dawn find you awake and alert,
approaching your new day with dreams,
Possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

John O'Donohue (1956-2008) Irish priest, philosopher, storyteller, poet,
Anam Cara. A Book of Celtic Wisdom, Harper Collins, 21. October 1998

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow wind work these words of love around you,

Oak trees forest in frosting mist, Langå, Denmark, January
A young man dreamed to enter an extraordinary shop.
He was warmly greeted by an angel.
The customer asked: What do you sell here?
The angel replied friendly: Everything that you want.
The young man started to count his wishes:
Then I would like to buy CHANGES as follows:
➤ the end of all wars in the world
➤ improvement of conditions for minorities in societies
➤ no more slums in Latin America or Third World countries
➤ work for the unemployed, and ... and ... and ...


Finally the angel stopped him with the remark:
Sorry you did not get what I meant to say:
         "We don't sell fruit here, we only sell seeds."

The gentle art of blessing

As you walk, bless the city in which you live, its government and teachers, its nurses and street sweepers, its children and bankers, its priests and prostitutes. The minute anyone expresses the least aggression or unkindness to you, respond with a blessing: bless them totally, sincerely, joyfully, for such blessings are a shield which protects them from the ignorance of their misdeed, and deflects the arrow that was aimed at you.


To bless means to wish, unconditionally, total, unrestricted good for others and events from the deepest wellspring in the innermost chamber of your heart: it means to hallow, to hold in reverence, to behold with utter awe that which is always a gift from the Creator. He who is hallowed by your blessing is set aside, consecrated, holy, whole. To bless is to invoke divine care upon, to think or speak gratefully for, to confer happiness upon – although we ourselves are never the bestower, but simply the joyful witnesses of Life's abundance.


To bless is to acknowledge the omnipresent, universal beauty hidden to material eyes; it is to activate that law of attraction which, from the furthest reaches of the universe, will bring into your life exactly what you need to experience and enjoy.


When you pass a prison, mentally bless its inmates in their innocence and freedom, their gentleness, pure essence and unconditional forgiveness; for one can only be prisoner of one's self-image, and a free man can walk unshackled in the courtyard of a jail, just as citizens of countries where freedom reigns can be prisoners when fear lurks in their thoughts.
