The things of this world will bring us peace and gratitude if we just look around us. The birds sing every morning, the waves wash the beach every day, and the stars greet us again each evening. Each day we will find the Spirit in these things and in our hearts and souls if we just take the time to look. Take your attention away from your problems for a moment, for your lack or your loss. What is still there? Is the sky still blue? Do we still have air to breathe? Wondrous works are all around us. To be full of the Spirit is to see and feel and know everything that we can.
Open your eyes and look around at all that is there in every moment.
Let your heart feel wonder and gratitude for life itself.
There is so much that we do not see until we truly look around at this world we live in.
To get closer to the Spirit, to see what is sacred, fill yourself with all that is around you.
