Thank-you, Kristi, and thanks to all the staff. I am so thankful for the richness of these teachings and the power of presence moment awareness to awaken us to gratefulness and reality. Love and blessings to you all.
I once had an experience in which it was revealed to “me” that Love is the Essence of the Universe and that all else is illusion. That’s about as close as I can come to describing it. It was an experience of utter peace, one-ness, and joy. I feel as if I “tasted” Reality. I can recall the beautiful images and sensations of this experience and feel comforted and peace in the presence of uncertainty and impermanence. It’s like a guiding star, along with ...

Thanks again to gratefulness.org, Br.David, and Kristi for your presence and practice. (B0wing)

Thanks to Kristie for your sweet practice.
Thank-you for this. Your words and intention align with and edify my heart and spirt this morning as I visit this space for my daily dose of inspiration.
Breath is the bridge that brings us home to our bodies, which dwell in the eternal present/presence.
Thank you for today’s sweet teaching.
Nicely done, Rose! Thanks for this sweet offering. I particularly liked the connection made between openness and acceptance. Peace to you and yours.
Beautiful, Fabiana. I feel exactly the same about this and have been practicing smiling, making eye contact, waving, and thanking in my little corner of the world. Love and peace to you and yours.

What a beautiful gift for words you have. I think I’ll go snow shoeing.
Thank-you, my brother, for your immense heart, your good works, and for embodying the continuation of so many great hearts and minds that have come before to show us the way.
Hey, man, this is beautiful. Your message brings a smile and tear (or two). Greetings from beautiful Edgewater, Colorado. Many blessings to your heart and the hearts of your ancestors and dear ones.
Ah, Greta. This is beautiful.
Thanks, Kristi. The timing and thoughtfulness of your words are just perfect. I’ll carry them with me on a hike into the Colorado foothills this morning.
Well done, you.
While sipping coffee
The Sun rises so brightly
On our suffering
First the nightbird sang
Then sunlight answered back
tiny buds on branches
witness robin’s arrival
as daffodils bow
The temple bell stops—
but the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers
Drawn because of the imagery and the mingling of the senses: sound from silent flowers. They invite with the call of the sacred, just as the temple bell.
I notice beauty
I experience a familiar, primal joy in the marriage of nature and the divine. Awe.
Thank you, Fabiana. You have added beauty to this day’s dawning.
Pure sweetness. Thanks so much, Kristi.
Tiny seed stirring
Veil of all possibility
The light of your heart
