The supreme purpose & goal for human life
is to cultivate love.
as we nurture and tend to the heart, we harvest our blessings, come clean with our grievances and soften our sufferings…..may you know abundance as you know love…
Gratitude deflates the barriers to love, and evokes happiness, which is itself a powerfully healing and beneficial emotion. Gratitude is a gift to everyone. While forgiveness heals the heart of old hurts, gratitude opens it to present love. Love does no flower in a vacuum, but rather is nourished by supportive attitudes such as gratitude. Love is also the essence of emotional wisdom. Reducing the barriers to love and cultivating attitudes that support is smooth the way for our hearts to open……Roger Walsh
The month of the harvest is an important milestone on our journey to loving in gratitude. The lessons of living and being human- of harvest, of letting be, and of letting go- surface in the fall as we prepare for winter and the close of the new year. What did not come to fruition, or what did not hold our interest, may reveal where we ‘tricked’ ourselves, and it shows us that it did not truly matter. We learn that what has heart and meaning for us comes into being, and that in contrast, any ambivalence or doubt we may feel often produces inconsistent results. Consider what you are harvesting in this light. Whatever we have accepted both internally and externally, we can let be. The questions to help you go deeper in the portals of gratitude…..What is strengthening? What is opening? What is softening? What is deepening?…..Angeles Arrien
