Living Gratitude

To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give one's self… to have played and laughed with enthusiasm, and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived… This is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Are you waiting for something really BIG before you tap into the power of gratitude? This moment is as big as it gets. Right now, IS the most precious moment.

Postponing the experience of gratitude in your every day moments until you accomplish something, get somewhere or become someone is only a misunderstanding. Your life is not lived in the past or in the future. The ONLY moment available is now.

Your life is a continuum of  ‘now moments.' Each moment offers you the opportunity to choose again: fear or love, limitation or expression, striving or being. There is no right or wrong in this choice. It simply is a choice.

The quality, depth, and breadth of your life are dictated by your moment to moment choices. You can choose to be a living expression of the abundance that is you. You can weave gratitude  into the tapestry of  every experience,  just by BEing.

Take a moment to scan the landscape of your life and allow the pinnacle experiences, your top of the world experiences, to surface. These moments are brimming with aliveness, with feeling, sensing and knowing. The expansion is infinite, time stands still and the boundless being that is you becomes unleashed.

These experiences might feel like a happenstance, the bounty of your Creator, or a gift of grace. What if THIS is who you are… a boundless being in joyful and infinite expression?

Today, instead of looking for something to fulfill you, complete you, ‘make you happy', own the abundance of your glorious Essence. There is nowhere for you to go, and nothing to do. Relinquish wanting. Rejoice in freeing. Rest in Being.

      1. It is really easy to get caught up in the negative sometimes. This was a great reminder of all the things, big and small to be thankful for. I have tried this when I am struggling through something and feel like I can’t. It is amazing how much easier it is when you concentrate on the positive. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
