Day 17 – Making Grace a Way of Life

“All that we have and don’t have is a grace.” ― Mac MacKenzie

In today’s meditation, we go beyond the mere behavior and attitude of gratitude, and let gratitude and grace become our way of being and living in the world. In the past, feelings of grace may have been rare and fleeting moments. To make grace permanent, we need to establish gratitude as a habit, so it becomes your default mode of relating to others.

When gratitude is the natural way you approach life, it is no longer an activity you try to remember to do. Gratitude is simply how you express who you are and how you feel. The practice of gratitude naturally and invisibly becomes a life lived in the state of grace.

The present moment is the only moment available to us and it is the door to all moments. —Thich Nhat Hanh

My Notes:

Make Grace a way of life.  We are the author of our own story.  All the power of the universe rises up to help you.  We must take gratitude from a fleeting feeling to being a way of being.  So much so that we no longer question it.  However it does seem to be in small doses so you need to make it a habit.  This work happens inside becomes a joy because with each effort it brings more happiness and fulfillment.  Grace stands beside me.  Grace is always there, but there will be times where life is not going well and we will lash out, like a small child who is blaming others for their pain.   We are responsible, no one else.   Take charge of your story.  Do not blame others.   Only you own it.  Everything you want to achieve in life already exists in your own being.    Eventually only love and light will exist in your life.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude
