May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine down upon your face,
And the rain fall soft upon your fields,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away. This leads to feelings of helplessness, emptiness, a sense of being a victim; eventually to anger and rage, and, if these feelings are also suppressed, to depression and deadness.

My Friend:
My friend has torn the mask of loneliness from my heart.
My friend has ripped the emptiness from my body.
My friend has erased the darkness from my soul.
My friend has given flight to the fear of my mind.
My friend has cast out my despair.
My friend has given wings to my hope.
My friend has sown my mind with dreams.
My friend has filled my soul with light.
My friend has filled my body with warmth.
My friend has filled my heart with love.
My friend has caused me endless joy.
~An original essay written by Vern Ewer and dedicated to Sue White.
