By passing the gratitude forward!
Connection – connection with purpose, with individuals, with God, with the world that surrounds.
I do have a tendency to see abundant opportunity throughout daily life, where the challenge becomes focusing on the one on which I am capitalizing – not all the ones that I have been unable to capitalize on, or missing out on as I type. Seeing opportunity in and of itself can be a mixed blessing – there is certainly the immeasurable benefit of seeing purpose and value all around, but one must retain grounded humility in doing our small part, doing what we can.
Humility, trust, courage – just a few virtues that would need reinforced for a truly unconditional, yes.
With strangers, realization of shared values, ideals and goals – despite oftentimes different means of expression; with loved ones, the same, although magnified by shared experiences and mutual reliance.
Breathe in …
Good people – people striving to do their best, daily, the fundamental part of all things good.
Every part, nearly all of the time – all taken for granted as I take in, move through, and strive to impact the world around me, fully reliant on my body and mind, without due appreciation/gratefulness – until I get sick or injured. Will do better!
When something is given to someone, there is an unavoidable urge to give to another. When I am given something, I want to give in turn. Gratefulness is the awareness of our daily gifts, so it is inevitable and unavoidable that when receiving these gifts through gratitude there is a matching desire to give to others – social change.
My ideals, my principles – if let go, I would likely feel liberated at first, but soon following devoid of motivation and direction.
While the world needs my compassion, such open compassion is only possible if I start with myself. I can take pause, breathe, and give myself the moment before I move to give to others.
Through intention and utilization of each – consideration, movement, and compassion, and repeat.
The wonder of our selves, being able to see, perceive, and contemplate, then subsequently shape all that surrounds. Where to start?
Three of the cornerstones — compassion or love, courage, and humility, each vital to any meaningful effort.
The world at its best is people at their best – manifesting the best of themselves, collectively and at all times, not sporadically or occasionally as we presently experience and see.
Humble myself and jump in.
Act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly – wise, eternal words to live by when lived courageously can be powerful.
When hearing and feeling divine synchrony within the rhythm of life.
That it is always possible to be more present – regardless of conditions and constraints, not necessarily through effort, but through intention and taking the time.
