“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” – Thornton Wilder
The first paradigm to consciously shift is Gratitude.
This is a difficult one to grasp and really, truly feel when the ‘word’ can become something that is so easily taken for granted. We assume that words will come to us when we need them.
We forget that there are times when we can’t find the right words; they escape us; they run like fury away from us; they dodge and hide from us; they slip through our fingers.
And so each day, we must thank the Gods of Writing. It’s a happy dance when we are able to string a sentence together that makes sense and captures the essence of what we are trying to convey and describe to another so that they can experience it the way we do. We must be thankful even for the days when the words are not as forthcoming as they are on others.
This reminds me of the Ho’oponopono meditation mantra of Letting the Material Stuff Go and is the recitation of, “I Love You; Please forgive me; I am sorry; Thank you…”
Have a wonderful day!
