Our perceived lack

The universe gives us everything that we need, there are opportunities there for us all in every unfolding moment.

However, we miss most of them, if not all, because we are to busy wondering in our minds what the future might be, where the opportunities will come from and how miserable we are that we do not have what we want to see now, this moment and what is there.

When we are conscious, we truly see, rather than seeking in our mind and suffering from our perceived lack.

Gratitude jar

We moved house just over 3 years ago and I decided to get a big jar to be our gratitude jar.

So we’d write on a post-it what we were feeling grateful for and then stuck it in the jar.

Naturally, there was a surge of enthusiasm for it, however, it died off and then we stopped adding to it and dust settled.

Today, I was having a sort out and decided to empty the jar and have a read through. Before I got more than 4 or 5 notes in, I was already choked and I realised just how important sharing gratitude and feeling grateful is.

Everyone is out at the moment, so I’ve stuck a selection of the notes on a piece of board and put it in the family room as a surprise for when everyone returns.

If we count what we have already and are simply grateful for that, then life is amazing and peaceful.
