Laugh, rejoice, and cry with tears of joy and gratitude at the wonderful miracles of this world--a newborn baby’s tiny fingers and toes, soft green buds just opening on the trees, tiny peepers singing the first songs of Spring, the comforting embrace of a loved one, a toddler's first steps. So many of the day's miracles can go by unnoticed when we are hurrying to complete chores and
errands, or when we are upset or overwhelmed by worry, illness, or loss. Practicing mindfulness will help us learn to slow down enough to notice to what is right in front of us, and to truly see what we have in our lives that is meaningful, valuable, and precious. In turn, we will regain a clearer, healthier perspective, and begin to experience gratitude for all that we have.
Take more time to see and hear and experience the world you live in.
Open your hearts to others, listening to them, and truly seeing who they are.
When you slow down, you will find there is more to this life than is ever dreamed of.
The more open we are to the world, the more open we will be to the presence of the Spirit.
