“Sense the blessings of the earth in the perfect arc of a ripe tangerine, the taste of warm, fresh bread, the circling flight of birds, the lavender color of the sky shining in a late afternoon rain puddle, the million times we pass other beings in our cars and shops and out among the trees without crashing, conflict, or harm.”
~ Jack Kornfield
Let’s notice, appreciate, and give thanks for blessings today. Blessings of all kinds. Especially everything that we perceive through our senses, including our sixth sense.
No matter what challenges we face today, no matter what troubles us in the news, let’s give thanks for all the beauty and goodness that is in our lives and in the world.
This doesn’t mean we deny or ignore anything that calls for healing attention and corrective action.
For all those things, let’s give thanks too for the guidance we receive, the inspiration, the help that is available in many forms, and the opportunities to learn and grow and make the world a better place.
Let’s begin to better see how rich we are, how fortunate, how blessed.
Let’s give thanks for all that seems “right” to us.
For all that seems “not right” too, perhaps we can see them as “ripe” and ready for change.
With that perspective we are more likely to be guided toward solutions and transformations.
Let’s do all this with hope,
