I know that there is beauty all around. I also know that there have been times in my life when I failed to appreciate the miracles around me or the beauty that predominates just because I was lost in thought or worse, familiarity. Perhaps that in and of it'self is why the practice of watching one's breath can bring so many benefits. Just letting go of thought and forgetting about the familiar habit of breathing to experience each breath and appreciate it for the miracle that it is.
Today, I will keep it simple and short.
I challenge each of you to notice something that is a constant in your life, forget what you know or think you know and just appreciate, whatever it is, for the blessings or beauty or miracle that this one things is. It does not matter if this is a person, an object, a scene or any tangible item. Just chose one, appreciate it and admire it as if it were new to you. Take a moment and be present with it.
If you dare, take a moment and tell me what happens.
May you experience the miracle that is you!
