This morning I was out in the meadow as the sun crested the hill, pouring its life giving rays onto everything it touched including myself. I closed my eyes and began the silent chant of words that are part of my spiritual practice. I bring as much love into these words as I am able and then request through the grace of the Divine to show me how to love more deeply, more fully.
Before the request is even complete my whole being is moved by inner warmth, much like the suns light that kisses the morning sky. I find myself speaking out loud. I am thanking the trees for their splendor, the earth for holding the foundation for the cycles of life and death, the air for is coolness and I appreciatie the gentle song of the last remaining crickets. I thank the Divine for the infinite way It expresses Its love across Its universal body.
God lays his glance
Life starts Clapping.
Creatures grab their instruments
And join the Song.
Whenever love makes itself known
The Jewel in the eye starts
The Divine revealed to me that gratitude is receptivity in action. It has shown me again that receptivity is a willingness to be taught.
