A Glorious Greeting

“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains.”

-John Muir

Our new year is a gift of 365 mornings resplendent in fresh beginnings and the possibility for sweet reflective endings.  Here’s to giving each one of these days as glorious a greeting as the sun gives the mountains, with abundant gratitude from sunrise to sunset.

Happiest of New Years!!  May it be brimming with Radiant Health, Adventure, Love, Learning, Deepening, Blessings, Unexpected Gifts and a Peaceful Heart, infused with nature, animals, family and friends!!

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

-Marcus Aurelius

Sun Through the Trees

“I like to walk alone on country paths,
rice plants and wild grasses on both sides,
putting each foot down on the earth
in mindfulness, knowing
that I walk on the wondrous earth.
In such moments, existence is a miraculous
and mysterious reality.
People usually consider walking on water
or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle
is not to walk either on water or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle
which we don’t even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child–
our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

We Always Begin Anew

2015 has dawned!

With it, a renewed realization that in every day, every hour and every new year, we are empowered to begin anew.  We can create the miraculous.   Revolutionary changes in our very being are available in each new moment.

The new year inspires.  Breathing together and in solitary communion, we know we have the power to change.  And to be.  There is hope. A quickening. A deepening.

May 2015 allow deep breathing into the wonder…

and a realization of the gifts of the present.

Peace, prosperity, laughter, great love, simple deeds, adventures, inner growth, understanding, quiet, time to reflect in gratitude are wished for people everywhere.  And to the planet and the animals may there be reverence, respect and radiance.

May our awareness allow the absorption into the new hours and moments of this new year.
