Gratitude for the Beauty All Around Us

In a time of fear about the potential of the coronavirus, it is important to remember gratitude.  I have spent the last few days feeling grateful for all the amazing spiritual conferences, exciting concerts, stimulating lectures, and wild parties I have attended over the years. I’m grateful for my extensive travel, for loving deeply, and for meeting people from around the world.

I’m blessed by all of you who have taken the time to listen to one of my podcasts or send me a note after reading my book. I’m deeply grateful to all the people with uplifting shows and podcasts who have taken the time to talk with me.

Just recently I talked with a local radio host, Dr. Paula Joyce , whose work is inspirational.  She is a best-selling author, coach, speaker, and top-ranked radio show host, but most of all she is compassionate and deeply in touch with spiritual realities.  Here are a few of her empowering tips.

This past week, many of us have slowed down, traveled less frequently, and spent more time with our loved ones.  The added blessing of staying local is connecting with super cool people in my area.  This week, I met Natalie Jones, author of Awaken the Higher Self: Bringing Darkness to Light at a new metaphysical shop in town called Soutopia. Natalie is a pioneer of consciousness and light, and her beautiful book will help and inspire many people.

As a near-death experiencer, my perspective on dying is unusual by many people’s standards.  I don’t fear it.  I’m not welcoming it or it encouraging it to happen soon, but I know that I will be greeted with deep love and compassion when I die.  I know that you will be too, and it only takes being open to that love to experience more and more of it in your life right now.

This time in history offers us all the opportunity to focus more on our connections with others and less on our “things.”  That includes the things that we have hoarded and what we have let go.  Open your heart to the people around you, and you will be blessed greatly.  It is through community that we will best survive.  It is the love that we take with us, not the toilet paper or hand sanitizer.  Stay safe everyone, but be kind and don’t let selfishness be your motivation.  Let love be your motivation!
