40 Days of A Space for Soul
#open #joy #wonder
Each moment of life holds a choice; I can sleepwalk through my days or wake in wonder to this miraculous planet and all the beautiful beings I share it with. Through my meditation practice, I’ve learned that focus and awareness shift everything. Whatever I focus on, increases.
How much richer can day to day reality become if awareness and joy became top priority? Whenever I choose joy and wonder, the world seems to shower me with even more joyful and miraculous experiences. Learn more about being joyfully mindful here: Wake up to wonder.
I have a choice in every moment
I choose joy and wonder now!
May you recognize in your life, the presence, power and light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone,
That your soul in its brightness and belonging
connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.
May you have respect for your own individuality and difference.
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
That behind the facade of your life
there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening.
May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride,
and expectation with which God sees you in every moment.
I would love to live
Like a river flows,
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding.
“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully,
he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.”
~George Washington Carver
“I drank the silence of God from a spring in the woods.”
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping
than you can understand.
~William Butler Yeats, “The Stolen Child”
“Earth laughs in flowers.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“You will find something more in woods than in books.
Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.”

Today I’m grateful for short days, long nights, freezing snow and ice…
The harsh weather of winter calls me home to the warmth of good food and loving family and friends. Winter blows in and I know it’s time to slow down, snuggle up and relax in the safety of my home den, surrounded by my pack. Thank you winter for encouraging me to pause for a little while.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
