I was thinking about essential attitudes and practices for daily peace, spiritual growth and constant contact with your Spirit/Source. Here’s what I came up with:
1- Gratitude. Gratitude is the energy of love. It fills up the empty places and cheers you up!
2- Acceptance. This is what is. Acceptance creates sanity, and allows you to make good decisions. It nurtures trust.
3- Surrender. This is what is, but I didn’t see it coming. Trust that everything that is happening is for your highest good.
4- Compassion. We’re all in this together. To be human is to be imperfect, to practice compassion it to be your divine self.
5- Contemplation/Meditation. Take time to sit and do nothing. It quiets the mind and connects you to your inner wisdom. It allows for perspective, expanded consciousness and forgiveness.
