Passing on Gratitude

Gratitude should be passed on and not passed over.

Every gratitude offering expands your abundance and affirms your blessings.

The unsolicited “thank you” promotes sweeter relationships and a kinder universe.

Suffering Through Our Dreams

Have you ever had a desire so strong and so deep that even the wanting brought with it heart sufferings?

Hannah, the mother of Samuel the prophet (Samuel 1:10), went to the temple and prayed for a child with such furious fervor and wayward weeping that Eli, the High Priest, assumed her to be drunk.

Hannah taught us that to dream big and bold, the soul needs to be drenched in delicious delirium.

In gratitude for those who read and respond to my Spiritualetters, I wish you all 
a life of Thanksgiving.

Arrivals and Arriving

Sometimes I find myself waiting for the new arrivals in my life.

In anticipation, I act as if they have already arrived.

I am inside the experience.

I taste the fruits of my laboring.

I sense the singular successes of my own scripting.

Inevitably, I find myself no longer waiting.

I am in the present tense and always arriving at my destination while welcoming the new arrivals one sumptuous sip at a time.

Our Present and Future Bliss

If you are in the moment, you are in the infinite. -Swami Prajnanpad

How often do we catch ourselves thinking about the near or distant future with a flash of intense longing for what could be?

How often do we catch ourselves refocusing our present and breathing in the wonder of the moment?

All we have is now. All is now. The “now” includes our present and future bliss.
