The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.

- Dr. Robert Holden

Lying in a heap of exhaustion after a long day, my chronic illness telling me that the day is over, I paused to have a minor hissy fit then realized that I knew this teaching. As I lay in my car I took in the dappling sunlight on the sky blue cinder block wall of the library where I'd just checked out some books. It may be in only an instant, it might be only for an instant, but it is, after all, an instant of peace.

Be Content

Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

- Lao Tzu

A life of gratitude accepts the bad with the good. Genuine gratitude is not a zero sum game in which thankfulness increases the more fortunate you are and decreases the more adversity you experience.

- Dan Clendenin

The depth and sweetness of The Divine is everywhere, especially in our doubts, fears, and worries.

- Me.

When before the beauty of a sunset or a mountain, you pause and exclaim, "Ah," you are participating in divinity.

- Joseph Campbel

Anne Frank

We can't control our destiny, but we can control who we become. - Anne Frank

Say Nothing

Drawing on my fine command of the language, I said nothing. - Robert Benchley

When we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world.  - John Muir

I’m Back!

Dear Listeners,

I'm hopefully welcomed back into your RSS feed. :-) I apologize for the extended vacation. In the future I plan to upload quotes, and slightly longer personal writings, all in the same theme of appreciation, gratitude, and the divine (however or not you perceive that). As always your feedback is welcomed. If you like this feed would you post a comment?
