Living A Life of Gratitude

livingalifeofgratitudewiseman

The cover of the book makes it seem as if it would be quite comfortable in a candy jar; rainbow colored confection with the words Living a Life of Gratitude: Your Journey to Grace, Joy & Healing scripted across it. The author, Sara Wiseman has a series of mini-bite stories to share with the reader who can  open a page at random and find delight at their fingertips. I have been reading it in nibbles myself; a few minutes before bed, in a park, as well as during lunch today at my favorite Chinese buffet and have found her tales to be inspiring and healing.

Samples include:

Coming Home which describes the feeling of meeting a Beloved with whom you feel a sense of being in a safe haven as Wiseman tells of how she met her partner.

A Simple Slice of Pizza that shines a light on what can occur when we trust the ‘turn right, go left, stop here’ guidance of Spirit.

Tenderheart which pays tribute to Wiseman’s wise-man son who is finding his way in the world.

The Feast of Everything offers a glimpse into infinity through  a Near Death Experience.

 

What brings all of these musings together is the laser sharp focus on what I think of as ‘gratidutinosity'; a combo of thankfulness and curiosity; an invitation  to play fully in the world.

Wiseman is a transformational teacher, author and intuitive who works with individuals and groups to help them reach their full potential. Her own self described ‘spiritual awakening’ took place in 2008 that set her on the path that wound inexorably to this moment. She is a regular contributor to The DailyOm.

This book is for anyone who wants to broaden their horizons, awaken their sleeping soul, expand their heart and give thanks (as said Kahlil Gibran) “for another day of loving.”

Inhaling and Exhaling
Breathing is necessary in order to sustain our corporeal existence. Inhaling and exhaling, over and over. The average human takes 12 breaths per minute which comes out to 17,280 each day. This doesn't factor in times of exercise. It is something that most people do without even thinking about it, un

Love Is All I Am
Lately, the Muse has been waking me up long around 4 a.m. Not sure why, but when that happens, I know it is important to take dictation. And so I do. A name came through first- Tyler Goldsmith. He is the lead singer for one of my favorite folk/rock groups called Dawes. Then the words "Love is all I
