Daily Gratitude – Day 2709

Today I Am grateful for knowing the importance of being grateful – even when there are powerful, difficult moments in life that don’t seem to have any logical reason to be grateful for them.

Grief.

Fear.

Loss.

Pain.

Regret.

Depression.

Confusion.

Chaos.

Tragedy.

Turmoil.

Sickness.

Death.

Being the cause of pain for others.

What possible reason is there to be grateful for that?

I won’t expect an answer today. I will be patient, and see what I discover.

I Am grateful for NOW, the only moment there is, metaphysically speaking, knowing everything I could possibly want is in existence NOW and is in my grasp NOW. In respect to this physical plane in which we use “clock time” to measure the Eternal Now, I Am looking forward to an amazing tomorrow, filled with love and joy, prosperity and abundance, creation and completion, new possibilities and new realities. I anticipate ending the day in complete satisfaction, knowing that only good comes to me, always. It is going to be the best day of my life, and I Am grateful for tomorrow today!

And So It Is.

Namaste,
Brian

Daily Gratitude – Day 2707

Today I Am grateful for whatever reason my body – or mind? – decided to stay awake after a routine middle-of-the-night bathroom trip at 4:30am, giving me the opportunity to watch a couple episodes of “The Office” and half of “The Pianist.”

I Am also grateful for how eager Jacob was in helping David with his Hebrew homework. (Not something I could do!)

I Am grateful as well for how eager David was in helping Jacob with a video project for school.

I Am grateful further for getting to perform in said video project! (It’s an homage to George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” – I played the drunken farmer! And had stuffed animals thrown at me!)

I Am also grateful for the leaders across the country – of every race – who are reminding us all of the most effective ways of protesting.

I Am grateful as well for having my boys witness history in the making as we watched the SpaceX Crew Dragon launch.

I Am grateful further for my ability to cheer those I love up and make them smile.

I Am grateful as well for completing the first draft of the screenplay I have been working on for the last few weeks.

Finally I Am grateful for a night full of laughter with David as we watched a funny movie.

I Am also grateful for the very quick and efficient car-side pickup system at Walmart where I had placed an order online.

Finally I Am grateful for another great Shabbat dinner with the boys, spending time looking at more old photos, watching movie clips and listening to music.

Finally I Am grateful for my “FP” helping me get to the core of some deep-rooted feelings, fears and concerns.

I Am, therefore I think, therefore I feel. I think.

Daily Gratitude – Day 2704
