Recognizing Gratitude

To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God
in everything.

Thomas Merton
Thoughts in Solitude

Thomas Merton so concisely expresses the fullness that a moment of gratitude can bring into our lives. It only takes a moment of mindfulness, of recognition of the great gifts we have in our lives, to feel filled-up by sensations of joy, security and love. A fullness so enormous and complete it goes beyond the small ego-bound selves of our minds, and into the greater Love of our Souls, and the collective expression of that, whether you name it God, the Universe, Source, or some other term.

Take a moment to breathe into mindfulness.
Find something that fills you with the Love of God in everything.
Bask in this love – never forget how you are loved – pass it on to others.
