IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

My ego talks / My humility acts. ~Sri Chinmoy
.
Today I am grateful...
  • for another Monday to practice
  • that this morning I feel rested and my cold seems to have abated
  • that I feel blessed to be part of this year's Round Up
  • that whatever today brings I am sure I will have help in handling it
  • that the First Step, first thing in the morning, creates a nice perspective

Humility is the real secret of the spiritual life. When we embody humility, we neither underestimate nor overestimate our life. Humility is not a matter of touching the feet of somebody. It is our feeling of consecrated oneness with humanity. Real humility is the expansion of our consciousness. It is the God-life within us. The higher we go, the greater is our promise to the Supreme in mankind. The more light we receive by virtue of our humility, the more we have to offer mankind. ~Sri Chinmoy

I needed the hope that my cold will be abated soon too! Still working on the rested up part.

I'm rested and my desires have been sated but not abated. Or something like that.
