Posts Tagged ‘gratitude’

At this moment, your life is giving you experiences that your soul ardently desires. Everything that you are going through is prompting you to grow in ways that you have always wanted to. And during these intense times, you are being asked to grow more than you ever have before.

At this moment, you are being challenged to stop the human madness of resisting love. You are being reminded to summon the infinite love that has always been within you. When you do, you open your all-accepting heart, and you grow your very soul. Not only that, but you inspire all of us to do the same in this frustrating, limiting world. You show us that limits are to be overcome, so that we can grow more than we thought possible.

Oh I know how impossible the task can seem! I know just how unforgiving life can feel. And that is why you are such a brave adventurer. You are so courageous to be a human being.

But you have everything you need to break through your challenges with love. You have the exact situations and relationships that will perfectly get you there. When you do, what seemed impossible becomes almost easy. In fact, you become grateful for everything you’ve ever had to endure.

And this gratitude isn’t about repenting or feeling unworthy. It’s not about feeling guilty because you haven’t been grateful before. It means loving all life without condition, including yourself. It means seeing that this love is integral to you.

When you feel fully grateful with love, you behold the beauty in all things, and then you recognize that same beauty in yourself. You remember that you are made of the haunting magic of creation, and yet your stardust is absolutely unique. Your part is essential in the dance of life, and it always, undeniably has been.

If you’d like to experience more gratitude, try this simple exercise:

One by one, think of the people who have touched your life in both “positive” and “negative” ways. Reflect upon what each person has taught you and the myriad ways they have shown you yourself. Think about what you have gained by knowing this human being and how pivotal they’ve been to your growth. Thank this person in your heart, and tell them what they mean to you.

Now view yourself in this same light. Think about everything you have been through in your life and the epic ways you have grown. See that your challenges required brave choices – in fact, every choice you ever made was brave because it created invaluable experience. This led you closer to recognizing the divine truth about you – that you are utterly exquisite to the core, and the universe is infinitely grateful for you.
