GRATITUDE MONTH: DAY 11: “The more grateful we are, the more we practice this in our everyday lives, the more connected we become to the universe around us.” ― Stephen Richards

My heart laughed at this quote today…so happy! I am so in touch with the world of Nature all around me, and continue to get to manifest the most beautiful moments in it.

Most of my associates and friends are running around, looking for connection in meetings, parties, going here and there, just chasing that illusive something that can only be found in stillness, quiet, time spent alone and when getting to know life as it comes.

The connections I seek are within me and within those who dare to really explore their inner selves. We are not here to serve the Ego, but most of us don’t know this until we get to a point of letting it all go and working through the “stuff” we put in the way of the spirit.

I want to continue to manifest my spirit and not the Ego. I have stepped away from so many things and so many people in this pursuit that I will not recognize my life in another 6 months or year. It will become a much different landscape, as it already is over where it was even 6 months ago. The consistent things I do are to write these daily and to do the work that keeps me plugged in to the spirit of this amazing life. It is more and more solitary and quiet, and less and less  social and “busy.”

There is a great deal of wonder and awe  that come with this. What I know today is that it can be quite lonely and alone. That is okay when I attempt to share it with those who truly don’t understand and don’t get it or even try.

Today I am sitting still and being quiet with myself and allowing the rest to unfold and flow. I have seen a new path that is opening up for me, and I am excited and preparing to journey into yet another form of teaching and learning that is coming. We shall see, we shall see.

For all of it, I remain in deep and abiding gratitude and  love.
