As grace connects us to the hidden truths of Nature, we are really discovering the essence of our expansive liberated self. Gratitude awakens these dormant gifts of our unlimited self and makes them powerful forces of positive change in our lives. As our self expands through gratitude, our concerns, anxieties, and insecurities become small and insignificant, while our experience of joy, freedom, beauty, and compassion continues to grow.

SANSKRIT MANTRA: Anata Swa Bhava (My true self has no limits or boundaries). 1.) Write about something in your environment right now that you are grateful for, but have never fully recognized before. It could be something as simple as the satisfying click of the keys on your keyboard or the effortless way your chair swivels. I appreciate the silence. I appreciate the breeze coming through the door brushing over me as I type. I appreciate the ability breathe freely and deeply. 2.) Remember a time when you were alone in nature, in which you felt unbounded and free. Elaborate on what that experience felt like. I always feel like that when I’m around water. But embarking on the cross country road trip I’ve come to find that being in nature in general gives me that same feeling. Time doesn’t exist and worry seems to elude you. 3.) Set aside two minutes right now to simply be – no words, no interactions, no activity. Feel your inner self expand, and afterwards write down what this experience was like. Frustrating because recently I have been having difficulty quieting my mind. 4.) Daily Reflection: I welcome all pure and good energy. I accept all good that is meant to come my way. I am clear and confident in my actions. Anytime that I feel out of sync I know that I can find my balance in nature. Nature is home and the source of all that I need.
