Gratitude is an essential component of spiritual living. You and I have the choice to live from the place of gratitude, or to be upset with where life may be at the moment. This reminds me of a quote I love from Lao Tzu: “Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
It is really easy to shift into the place of gratitude if you will make the choice to be happy… to look for the good things in your life, the blessings, and there is always something to be grateful for. Acknowledge the gifts in your life right now, because what I’ve learned is; it opens your heart to receiving more abundance and blessings.
Mother Teresa said, “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.”
My challenge to you is to live in the moment, saying “thank you” for where you are in life today, trusting that the divine is orchestrating the wonderful life you desire… Keep the faith.
Each day is a gift, and I truly believe if you and I are here today… our work here isn’t finished. We must remain open to the present moment of this life and continue to acknowledge the beauty in our life today. See with your spiritual eyes, your soul, and listen to the still small voice guiding you…
With much love,
