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.”

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
