Where are your thoughts today. When the days past have been busy and full, have you made time for you. Have you made time to say THANK YOU for all you’ve received so far, yes whether for the challenges or the joys. Does your heart rejoice at the end of the day?
When I first began a life of teaching and service I was a student of life, many decades later, I am constantly learning and relearning lessons that I thought I had learned already. However, when I reflect on my most inner feelings, or when my emotions are being rendered senseless with constant chatter from my tattle telling mind, I realize that I’ve been forgetting that I am the captain of my ship. Whatever the circumstance, it was through my choices over time that I am currently in the puddle I’m in. Sigh, the quotes and sayings that are posted all over social media, and used in my blog and others, are great, but reading them and acknowledging the truth of them isn’t enough.
We have to live the words we believe in, we have to acknowledge and give thanks to the Universe for the learning we are acquiring. Live and learn brothers and sisters,this is life, this is living. Express and live with full Makoto (sincerity) Reach out and say thank you today when you can, even for minor matters, smile from the heart and have a blessed day.
