Daily Reminder # 121

Well, I really liked today's "I Believe God Wants You to Know" from Neale Donald Walsh, so that's today's theme.  I like the idea of daily kindness. Years and years ago now, at a workshop I attended we did a series of "mirroring exercises" that ended with mirroring to the person you were facing their own beauty... something like that. It was one of the most profound experiences of my life, because as I did it, I experienced - at least in those moments - my OWN beauty - as well as his. I wish every human on earth could experience what I felt at least once in their lives. 

On this day of your life, dear friend, I believe God wants you to know...that your job, your invitation from the Universe, is to give people back to themselves.
You can do this every day, in a hundred ways. Why not practice it with the first three people you encounter after reading this?
It is really a very easy thing to do -- yet it can affect a person mightily. All you have to do is look for the best in that person, and then show it to them, right then and there. Describe it. Admire it. Thank them for it.
Do this for three people every day and watch how your whole life can change. At last you will realize what you are doing here. All the rest will be just stuff and nonsense.

Some things I'm grateful for today:
  • my kitties
  • Angels
  • photography
  • Fall colors
  • Rain
  • my Tibetan Salt lamps orange glow
  • the people in my life
  • my nieces and nephew
  • the internet
  • beauty

Have a lovely day!
May Your Own Beauty be Mirrored Back 
to You In a Thousand Ways - 
and May You SEE Yourself!

Yes, thanks ! I like Walsh.
I have been dipping in and out of
" Women who run with wolves" If you have access to a copy, dive in where ever you can find an opening... I landed late
and then went on. (I haven't looked to see if it is on kindle)

Hi Natasha - thanks. Gratitude has really improved my days considerably.

Hi Izzy.... that's a great book. Read it years ago. Should probably pull it off the shelf again one day.
