Today in the midst of great pain and suffering I was drawn to be outside. As I sat in the chair taking in all the beauty of nature I felt such deep grace and love. I felt the wind caressing my body gently. The sound of the birds brought joy to my heart. Watching my dog play is always a deep pleasure. The trees reminded me to be deeply rooted and grounded in nature. I felt called to simply rest in the love that was all around me at this time.
I felt how beautiful it was to feel such deep love for myself and that it was ok to depend on help right now. I felt how beautiful it was to be at a place where I can do such acts of love for myself throughout my day. I never thought I would ever feel this sense of deep love for myself and for all that is, including my pain and suffering. I sat in awe and wonder for the mystery of life and for every sacred moment of my day. I never thought I could feel this way in the midst of my pain and suffering.
