Gratitude Is Heaven

 

“Gratitude is heaven itself.”-William Blake

Ponder gratitude.  Enter into each day with an attitude of gratitude that spills over into every interaction you have.  Do a gratitude dance. What would that look like? I imagine it starting with a wee bit of toe tapping that takes over my legs and from the top of my head that has my hair stand on end, meeting in the middle and building to a “whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on.” 

When I consider all of the people, places and things that bring an appreciative smile to my face, I envision a  royal treasure trove filled to overflowing with shiny gold coins and lush silks.  Each one is valuable beyond measure. Magic surrounds me. Cosmic coincidences give me the giggles. Folks I didn’t know months or years ago are now dear to my heart. What was life like before them?  Hard to imagine.

 

This song by the brilliant musical inspiration Rickie Byars Beckwith, beckons with the perfect invitation to do my gratitude dance. I dare you to stand still while listening:)

Alle-Alleluia

    Doing a gratitude dance is a happy thing. I just posted a u-tume video on facebook about 2 guys you took their gratitude dance around the world. It’s awesome. I’m sure you’ll love it!

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio

Thriving Artist
Last night, I attended a holiday gathering for a group of talented artists, writers, publishers, radio hosts, producers, as well as PR and marketing folks. Needless to say, I was in my idea of heaven. The Center City Philadelphia Restaurant where it was held is called Bliss. What a perfect place for
