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.”

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are.

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season.

A Matter of Balance
I am a Libra, born October 13th and have found that balance is an essential ingredient in my wellness cookbook. Some work, some play, some rest. Time with friends and family, time in solitude. Time to dance and sing, time to meditate and veg. Kind of a bio-psycho-social version of Ecclesiastes. I f
