My husband received this remarkable Aztec ‘blessing’ from Evy who lives in Ghent, Belgium and he asked me to post it on the Stuff Page. It is as true as anything can be. It is just a beautiful sentiment and life lesson. Thank you Evy. Love Susie x
This message came by in my life recently. It’s an old Nahuatl blessing. I think what it describes is very beautiful, but also very difficult. It’s a wish, my wish to the world today. Evy, Ghent, Belgium
I free my parents from the feeling they failed me.
I free my children from the need to make me proud,
so they can write their own path in harmony with their heart, which always whispers in their ears.
I free my partner from the responsibility to make me complete.
I lack nothing and I learn from all beings, always.
I thank my grandparents and forefathers who gathered here today so I can breathe life.
I free them from all unfulfilled longings from the past.
I am aware they did their best, according to the consciousness they had at that moment.
I honour you, I love you, I acknowledge you as innocent.
I am transparent before your eyes, so you know I don’t hide anything, so you know I’m only true to myself and my existence.
Walking with the wisdom of my heart, I am aware I live up to my life’s purpose, free from the invisible and visible family loyalties that might disturb my peace and joy, which are my only responsibilities.
I renounce my role as saviour, as being one who unites and fulfills the expectations of others.
I learn through, and only through love.
I bless my essence, my way of expression, even when someone doesn’t understand.
I understand myself, because I only experienced my past.
I respect and appreciate myself.
I honour the Divine in myself and in you.
We are free.
