Currie's Gratitude 28 November 2013


If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. [Meister Eckhart]

That is one of my favourite quotes of all-Time. I come from a family that seems to scorn prayer, or at least that is what I’ve noticed, so I am often looking for innocuous ways in, if that makes sense.

I also love his idea of prayer. I often find both Please & Thank You to BE prayers. And of course there is the glorious Enoughness of them that makes my little heart sing!!

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. [Gilbert K. Chesterton]

What a word-dance, eh?! Today BEing Thanksgiving, I feel an inner safety net. I know that many people, who don’t seem comfortable BEing Grateful Out Loud throw that aside on Thanksgiving. I think it will BE good to BE in the path of mass Gratitude!!

I'm thankful for serendipitous moments in my life, where things could've gone the other way. [Rick Springfield]

This is a wondrous thought this chilly morning. I have been deliberate about looking at my Life from a slight distance and remove. To see my Life through eyes at a different perspective.

And oftentimes I feel just this way.


I love you, Currie

I love your art and your quotes. One of my favorite prayers this year is "Let Go." I've had lots of opportunities to pray those two words!

We can strive to make our whole life a prayer. :)
