Day 16 – The Hidden Secret of Being
“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” ― Thích Nhất Hạnh
In today’s meditation, we explore how the practice of gratitude reveals the hidden qualities of our awareness: wonder, joy, and beauty. As grace connects us to the hidden truths of Nature, we are really discovering the essence of our expansive liberated self.
Gratitude awakens these dormant gifts of our unlimited self and makes them powerful forces of positive change in our lives. As our self expands through gratitude, our concerns, anxieties, and insecurities become small and insignificant, while our experience of joy, freedom, beauty, and compassion continues to grow.
Love truth and beauty is inside of you. They come out when your awareness is expanded to gratitude. Everyone has that experience when something is magnified in beauty. Such moments happen for the short term.
When you are out in nature, and you appreciate the beauty, you only see awe and wonder when you create it. The hidden secret is that you already have this.
