Last night, I kept awakening for now reason and then just comfortably cuddling beneath the covers as I was wide awake.
|It rarely happens that I cannot easily go to sleep whenever I wish. It is just some sort of a gift I have that I can easily go to sleep. I have never been kept awake by any worry or concerns. I even slept during the last stages of labor and they would wake me up and say “Push!”So, I have little experience with lying in bed awake unless it is by choice.|
As I lay awake last night , I was very much in the moment. In the Now. So I decided just to experience lying in bed. Just being.
And it just naturally followed, as being in the now, in the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand – the I AM moment – that I naturally welled up with appreciation for it. One cannot drag in resentments, anger, fear, upsets, and any of the past woes into the now and actually be in the Now. Being in that present time, which is a kind of being in the Truth, one enjoys the clarity of appreciating the gift of the moment.
|There I was cozily appreciating and giving The Divine thanks for my being cozy, for the breathing I began to experience, for the dark, for the now…At that moment, everything was perfect.And then the alarm went off. It was morning. At some point I had just fallen fast asleep.||Woman of Valor Rosebud print|
Despite our daily concerns, worries and goals, we have so much to be grateful for that we did not really create for ourselves. Even a sick person has enough good health to be alive, and enjoy all if not most of their senses of sight, taste, smell, etc.
It’s not about seeing the glass as half full or half empty but experiencing the kind of miracle that there is a glass that can hold water and that there is water. For even glassblowers cannot make the silica and ingredients used to make a glass, and water is always a gift of life.
This Thanksgiving I look forward to giving more thanks quietly and personally. In appreciating small moments and acts of moments of chewing, sharing, laughing, seeing breathing and being in the now.
I hope this inspires you to join me in that appreciating and give thanks in the now, too.
