Today is the day that we are gifted with. How shall we use this gift of the day? Do we ignore this day as our sources’ gift to us and focus on our ego? On our “ what’s not going right?? “, our vanity? On our glass which is half empty? The choice is ours. Can we look at this day as a gift, the same feelings that we have when we are surprised when we receive a gift from a friend or a loved one? That feeling of elation and joy rather than looking at this gift unenthusiastically. Treating this gift as a present with a gift receipt which can’t wait to be exchanged. So the question is how do we muster up the gratitude and dig into the humility of treating this every day experience as something new? Something great? Treating this gift as a present? Perhaps there me be something unpleasant we are anticipating throughout the course of our day. An unexpected problem or experience. Is this stealing the thunder from our gifted day? This is a great opportunity to exercise our use of trust. This is the opportunity to open the heavens and let the radiant light of a higher power bath us, saturate us, embrace us, surround us, glorify us in the saving grace of this gift, this day. Take it in. Allow yourself to be filled with the surprise and glory of this day. The unknown surprise of this gift! Thank you universe for gifting me with another day where I can celebrate life. Namaste.
