At last night's Wednesday meditation,
I focused us with these thoughts.
There is a give and take to gratitude. We are stronger when we remember we are CONNECTED BY OUR HEART…AND OUR ROOTS.
Like the Redwoods…OUR TRUTHS are dirtier & deeper.
Those trees, since the Jurassic era, have gotten so strong and sure - seeming to go it alone.
But they are connected to their others by the roots. They share resources, silently and secretly - all the time- even
If they seem to be alone in that valley.
THEY are not alone but connected in MYSTERY and MIRACLE.
I also spoke about the DYNAMIC BALANCE of nature... and us.....(Click the Read more below)
We will ALL, as human beings, find ourselves regularly in the human valley of disappointment and loss…i.e. our wilderness where we have forgotten who we are .
But our roots remember, and so do our hearts,
When we drop down and breathe in the clarity (of clean air…thank you God) and the principles
Which sustain us.
AND LASTLY, I brought in the idea of Oneness and the grounding of our bodies in the Earth (AKA some Deepak words)
May these words support you today and throughout the week.
Gratitude is a place to be grateful from.
Gratitude turns what we have...into enough
