An excerpt from my book Inner Divinity was posted as an article on Innerchange Magazine online. The article was on Gratitude. I’m feeling a sense of gratitude and appreciation most profoundly these days. I hope that there can be some balance of experiencing those emotions for you as well, even as there are inevitably challenges in your life or things you would change if you could.
I’ve found that sinking into appreciation and gratitude is a helpful tonic for the angst and sadness that comes when we are focused on what we feel we lack. The holidays can be a roller coaster of emotions for many of us. The serenity that is intended to infuse this time of year is often replaced with a frenzy of shopping, visiting, traveling, or perhaps the sense of the absence of those things. How do you find and keep your center during this time?
Wishing you a peaceful heart,
