Your life is meant to be a loving conversation between you and the Divine.
“The small things of life have to be transformed by your inner transformation. This I call the religious quality; everything becomes sacred. Taking a bath, making love, eating food, going to sleep – everything becomes sacred.”
Imagine what your life experience would be like if gratitude was the first thing to come to mind in every situation. Each step you take, each moment would simply be part of a loving conversation. As the mind is reconditioned to see the good, expect joy and embrace what is, this approach will become your natural way of being.
Gratitude lifts us higher. It transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. To the outside eye it may appear that nothing has changed. We still “chop wood and carry water” however, the quality of the work is transformed. A spiritual, balanced life is one that blends the meditative qualities of a buddha within the human experience.
Mastery is the allowing of your true inner spirit to shine. It is your birthright, your joy, your expression of life. It awakens through your gratitude.
Today my intention is to honor this moment as sacred.
