Daily Gratitude – Day 2947

Today I Am grateful for taking a stand in my own way for peace, harmony and healing.

I Am also grateful for enjoying another breakfast with my boys.

I Am grateful as well for a few lengthy conversations for clarity and consensus around some technical and operational aspects of running the CSLNJ online bookstore.

I Am grateful further for two good conversations with my prayer partners.

I Am also grateful for being able to go to work late in the day so my kids could finish school at home and get some homework done before bringing them to their mother’s.

Finally I Am grateful for treating myself to dinner and creating some business opportunities in the process.

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 2946

Today I Am grateful for having the first day in a week that I didn’t have to leave the house. (You’d think after nine months of sheltering in place the last thing I’d want to do is stay home, but it felt good to not go anywhere.)

I Am also grateful for choosing to participate in a weekly CSLNJ group discussion that I wasn’t facilitating. (I’m usually too preoccupied on the weeks that I don’t lead.)

I Am grateful as well for a great Sunday Celebration, followed by our annual meeting, during which I was able to present the online bookstore for those who have not checked it out yet.

I Am grateful further for getting some clarity around a handful of topics with our Center’s bookkeeper.

I Am also grateful for being able to work from home for about an hour.

I Am grateful as well for a great dinner with my boys, followed by some binge watching of YouTube videos.

Finally I Am grateful for getting a call from an old friend with whom I hadn’t spoken for far too long.

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!

Daily Gratitude – Day 2945

Today I Am grateful for getting up early enough to make breakfast for the boys before they woke up.

I Am also grateful for how much responsibility the boys were able to take on for the few hours that I was at work.

I Am grateful as well for being able to help my first client prepare for his future and his family’s future in a safe, comfortable way.

I Am grateful further for one of my best lifelong friends who celebrated a milestone birthday today.

I Am also grateful for getting together for dinner with my sister, brother-in-law and nephew, who delivered some late-arriving holiday gifts to them – and treated us to our amazing meal.

I Am grateful as well for a fun ride home, with Jacob and I singing along to one of our favorite songs.

Finally I Am grateful for David for being so thoughtful enough to buy me a Lego Mandalorian key chain and for the funny videos he shared with me tonight.

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.

Daily Gratitude – Day 2944

For the record, sometimes doing this blog is downright hard. Sometimes it’s tough trying to find six things for which I’m grateful through my day if it’s been a rough one. (I’ve heard six is a good minimum, by the way, which is why I do it. I had started with three, which is way too easy.) Sometimes time gets away from me or I’ll fall asleep and have to adjust the date on my settings if I don’t post it before midnight. Sometimes I feel weird if I’m expressing gratitude for the same things over and over, etc.

And then sometimes I get some really horrible news before I start writing.

It only stopped me from detailing my daily list once – the night I lost April. There was just no way I could have wrapped my head around doing it that night. But I know my friend Shane would not want me to give up on the one important spiritual practice to which I am most dedicated.

So today I Am grateful for my friends Alan and Tricia, who first introduced me to Shane Zwiebel – if memory serves me I think it was at Alan’s 50th birthday party at the old location of CSLNJ in West Orange, but it might have been before that. Maybe it was their wedding, or maybe even before that. I honestly don’t remember, but meeting him was life-changing, for I had met a damn good friend.

I Am also grateful for randomly running into Shane one day at ShopRite, where he proceeded to tell me about his chiropractor whose skills were damn near miraculous – and before long my ex-wife became a steady client and benefited greatly.

I Am grateful as well for the parades in which we would randomly run into each other, and for the few gigs that he asked me to play for him.

I Am grateful further for meeting his gem of a wife Rebecca, hearing the news about the birth of their children and watching them grow – and even follow their dad’s passion for bowling.

I Am also grateful for getting to do a little video project for his big band at the legendary Trumpets in Montclair.

I Am grateful as well for the Thomas the Tank Engine toddler bed he gave to my son David, after his son outgrew it and David outgrew his baby sleeper.

I Am grateful further for the time I helped him when he got backed up at his embroidery shop – and for his and Becky’s help when I had some car trouble.

I Am also grateful for getting the chance to point him in a direction this summer which had some profound impact on his health and well-being.

Finally I Am grateful for all of his random phone calls, all of his stories and anecdotes, all of the many, many, many laughs and all of pure love and joy that he demonstrated.

The world has lost an amazing human being last night. And heaven just gained one hell of an angel.

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

P.S. On this particular night, I am NOT grateful for the coronavirus pandemic. You suck, COVID! But I Am grateful for allowing myself to know that it’s okay to be pissed off about it.

Finally I Am grateful for picking up the boys on my way home and coming home to another home-cooked meal.
