Our Beautiful Child, we are grateful that you have chosen us to be your parents. To be beautiful means to be yourself. May you accept yourself and see the beauty inherent within you. May you lead a life of reverence and walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet. May your joy be the source of your smile, and your smile be a source of joy to the world. Smile, breathe and go slowly. Because you are alive, everything is possible. Yet, Life is available only in the present moment.
“Around us, life bursts with miracles–a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”
“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.” “Our own life has to be our message.” May yours be one of grace and compassion, a blessing upon this world. May our heart’s garden of awakening bloom with hundreds of flowers, as we hear your name, (BABY’S NAME HERE).”
