When all is understood, all is forgiven.
One of the Ways the Universe expresses Its infinite love and abundance is through Its gift to each of us of one or more talents. Knowing where our talents lie and being willing to express them is key to releasing our inner joyfulness.

…the more you become a connoisseur of gratitude, the less you are a victim of resentment, depression and despair. Gratitude will act as an elixir that will gradually dissolve the hard shell of your ego- your need to possess and control- and transform you into a generous being. The sense of gratitude produces true spiritual alchemy, makes us magnanimous- large souled.
– Sam Keen
Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.
– Audre Lorde
We already have everything we need. There is no need for self improvement. All the trips that we lay on ourselves- the heavy duty fearing that we’re bad and hoping that we’re good, the identities that we so dearly cling to, the rage, the jealousy and the addictions of all kinds- never touch our basic wealth. They are like clouds that temporarily block the sun. But all the time our warmth and brilliance are right here. This is who we really are. We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake.
– Pema Chodron
Every moment is enormous, and it is all we have.

Experience is our way back home, This work requires an unguarded heart, Improvising each day, Protect and celebrate a love that is wild, Throw flowers at all that is evil, There is magic among us, The source of our power is in the Earth, The birds teach us how to listen
– Terry Tempest Williams
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye
– Antoine De Saint- Exupery
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

When in the body of a donkey,
enjoy the taste of grass.
