A blessing for the road

A blessing for the road of life,  in Ben Okri’s magical novel The Famished Road:

The road will never swallow you. The river of your destiny will always overcome evil. May you understand your fate. Suffering will never destroy you, but will make you stronger. Success will never confuse you or scatter your spirit, but will make you fly higher into the good sunlight. Your life will always surprise you.

In the Nigerian author’s novel, these wise and lovely words are spoken over a spirit child who has a hard time staying in one world, by the no less strange (and vast) Madame Koto, the proprietor of a two-fisted bar.

They are a blessing I would welcome, and would gladly extend to others. On any day we can find ways to bless each other.

May you remember your life’s purpose.

May suffering make you stronger.

May success make you fly higher, into the light.

May your life always surprise you.

May it be so.

    Thank you very much, Robert. That quotation is an inspiration. Truer words were never spoken (nor written).
