We might consider that awareness of, and having a true connection to the abundance in our lives and the acknowledgement that we have people in our lives who love us, want to be with us, will help us even when the need arises, is a big part of our practice. To know and honour all those moments where we feel deeply, where we have those gorgeous sparks of insight and loving connection, where we learn and have learnt in the past from amazing teachers, to be conscious of our material good fortune, our mental strength and spiritual growth is very important.
We are given such beauty to contemplate, such love to feel, so much we can give to and share with others.
Our acknowledgement of all this abundance roots us into a wondrous feeling of humility, joy and gratitude. It just does. It sets up all sorts of kindness moments, to ourselves and others...Love and kindness and joy live where we practice this, right?
