I read this in the Unity Daily Word and wanted to share this…
I am grateful for simply being.
Counting my blessings is a thoughtful practice, which helps me maintain an attitude of gratitude. It is good, though, to move beyond gratitude for people, places and things, to gratefulness for existence itself.
Going within, I begin by appreciating this moment of peace. Then I become grateful for simply being. This shift in consciousness allows me to fully experience my oneness with the divine Presence, oneness with all that is. The peace I feel is expansive. My gratitude opens wide the realization that I am more than my body, my personality, my experiences–I am an expression of the Divine. I’ve been given this moment in time to exist in this world, to love and to serve, to follow my bliss. And for this, I am truly grateful.
