Gratitude Before Us by kristin

harvest clothIt’s that time of year again. The sun is still shining here in Fort Bragg- we’ve been lucky this fall, and I’m happy we’ve had so much beautiful weather.  The season at hand is a call to each of us to remember to be grateful and count our blessings. It’s easy to get swept up in the commercialism that surrounds us at this time of year, and forget all about the reason for the season, isn’t it? Tomorrow is a significant day – it’s 11-11-11, and at 11 AM in whatever time zone you find yourself, you can join many people around the world who will meditate and pray for peace, with the intention of bringing more light to the planet. We’re doing a group meditation here at Living Light to honor and celebrate the beginning of the season of of light We’ll gather together and hold the space for planetary transformation, which always begins in each of our hearts. One of my favorite poems is by Angeles Arrien:

“Gratitude before me, gratitude behind me, gratitude to the left of me, gratitude to the right of me, gratitude above me, gratitude below me, gratitude within me, gratitude all around me.” The simple words help us remember to keep the attitude of gratitude no matter where we are. dream woman
