    This moment is offering me to immerse myself in others’ gratitude moments and share my own. We may not know each other. We may never meet, but we are all connected still and I’m grateful to be here.

    It is early evening here and this question was posed yesterday. This moment is firstly offering me a reminder that the present is what matters. This moment is reminding me of the strength and insight I draw from time spent with this community. This moment is reminding me of the benefits of a spiritual practice. This moment is offering love, acceptance, peace and gratitude.

    This moment is offering air to breath. After all, thinking about stories past and future that most often never happen, we are left with the present moment of breathing and…”if we’re breathing there is more right with us than wrong with us”. JK-Z. No matter if it’s mental or physical pain, if not breathing nothing else matters. May I live this today🙏🏼

    What is this moment offering? I feel satied after having a good dinner here where I live. I feel satisfied after having good conversation with friends around the dinner table. I feel satisfied for having lived this day.

    Today is a new beginning, a clean slate, a time to learn from but also forget the failures of the past and instead make the most of the present.

    I can not catch the moment. How to think about a moment? When i try to focus on it, it is already gone. But some Kind of I remains through all the moments. Isnˋt it. Some Kind of Peace, contentment and love. I think this is what connects us all, because it is the nature of all of us. . .

    This moment is offering me a quiet house, a cup of coffee, rain on the roof, gratitude for a warm dry house and comfort, and time in which to read poetry, which is how I start my days along with reflecting on these questions. A site called A Year of Being Here is part of my morning routine. Curator Phyllis Cole-Dai posted a mindfulness poem every day for three years and on each day I read the three poems for that date. One of yesterday’s poems fits today’s question here https://www.ayearofbeinghere.com/2013/01/william-stafford-you-reading-this-be.html.

    My first cup of coffee for the day, a fresh cinnamon roll that my son baked yesterday, bright sunshine to help melt the layer of ice that fell beneath the New Year’s Day snow which my compassionate neighbor already cleared off of my sidewalk and driveway. The opportunity to be grateful and hopefully the willingness to be present and learn whatever life has in store for me today.

    I am new to gratefulness.org. Discovered you all through Angeles Arrien’s book Living in Gratitude. Although knowing the benefits of being grateful and, even practicing gratitude from time to time, I am now ready to practice daily moment by moment. So thank you all for the opportunity to connect here.❤️

    This is my “quiet time”, my morning time of contemplation and reflection. It’s the time of day when I set my “cornerstone” for the day. Every other act and thought of the day is strengthened and steadied by the time I spent preparing myself during this vital time.

    I woke early when my husband got up for work. I was cold and experiencing some pain, but in THIS moment I am no longer in pain, I am warm, I have a hot cup of tea and a sweet orange, and I am getting drowsy again so I will be able to go back to sleep. I am content! I’m glad for the question because it brought my attention to the relief after brief discomfort, so that now I understand it as a gift.

    At 4:30 AM, my day is just beginning. The only thing I want from this particular moment is to sit here quietly and drink my cup of coffee. What the day offers, and what the world wants from me can wait on the other side of my cup of coffee! After that, bring it on! 😊

    Peace and strength. It is quiet, as our dog is asleep next to my side of our bed, and my husband is quietly snoring. I am in the living room, drinking some water before my cutoff time of 3AM. I am having oral surgery this morning, in 6 1/2 hours. This time alone is grounding for me. Life is good. Those two teeth need to be removed after years of on again off again pain. All will be well, and my life can go on in a few more weeks. I am so grateful and lucky to still be alive. May you all be blessed with good health and much happiness in this day ahead of us….

    What is this moment offering? Let me grab a hold of it and see. Mmm, grabbing it is the thing I could do less of. Because grabbing at it takes me out of it. So it’s offering is to do absolutely nothing right at this moment.

    11 months ago
    1. Kevin

      You know, Malag, your response reminds me of the Zen saying of, “Do no new thing, “ which is what my Support and Oversight Committee advised me to do of doing no new thing (in ministry) for at least one full year when I retired. from from an active ministry with children and teens for 31 years since retiring. I can say that it was hard to do! The key is, the Spirit ought to decide what comes next, not this person called Kevin. I had days when I’d like to buck that, but I didn’t. And there were days when I thought, “Hey God, where the heck are you?” And for awhile, “crickets.” (Meaning, nothing came)

        Yes, Kevin. Its interesting when we get out of the way, great things can happen.
