The whole universe is love’s endless dance. — Kabir

Please read slowly and as you read, come in touch with something you are grateful for…allow the feeling of gratitude to expand into every cell inside of you until you feel your wings.

The energy of gratitude is both enlivening and soothing. Let this energy open you to the grace that can live in you and channel through you for the benefit of all. Gratitude and grace stem from the Latin gratus. To be graceful, you need to be grateful. Like attracts like so the more grateful you are, the more graceful you become.
