World Gratitude, Days 4 and 5

Not much to say about these two days, I'll just share prompts as they came to me. I'm too lazy to add much thought to them, though there is food for thought in the idea of being reborn (day 4) each day. And my therapist was working with me on breathing (day 5) the last time we spoke. All the changes have been putting me into a state of high anxiety and I tend to stop breathing when that happens.

I'm adjusting to my new bathroom and loving it more and more each minute, getting more comfortable with the new logistics of moving in there and using the hand grips. Someone came yesterday to measure the kitchen for the linoleum. Angel is living on top of the refrigerator these days. Poor baby. Her new queendom will be taken away soon. Not sure how to finish getting ready for the next phase. I guess Nate and Dan will bring the new refrigerator and help me move the boxes. I actually sat on my bench yesterday (Shannon got the coveted chair at the computer) and Angel escaped briefly. Thank goodness Shannon is young and fast. Alas, now Angel is on alert for escape and ready to raise my anxiety level through the roof every time I have to open the door. Sigh.

Meant to do Ruby Tuesday today but somehow the day is half over and I haven't done it yet, so I think I'll skip again this week.

Guess that's it for now. Today I'm grateful for my new bathroom, things to come, beauty, life, and music.


Allow Gratitude to guide you through NOW to the
moment of your conception, your earthly Being-ness.
As you journey through to the beginning of YOU let Gratitude
be your guide, remembering a state of perfection, purity, and
one-ness with Source.
One might be surprised to realize how many times the physical
body re-creates itself through Gratitude. So it IS with our
energetic, intellectual, and spiritual Selves, too.
You're beautiful, baby!
Go Gratitude!
Imagine this Beloved Union happyning within YOU - one beating
true with Love and Gratitude. Feel this pure state of emerging Life
bridging here with NOW, re~birthing *you*, US, everyone
into a state of Grace through the power of Gratitude.


Conception: Two cells merge, form a 'vesica piscis' - a deeply
sacred shape where the centres of two spheres or circles bisect
each other. Next sperm and ova pass right through each other
to become a single cell or zygote. Then: mitosis and the
chromosomes join, then migrate to North and South poles.

Then a tube forms pole to pole and the chromosomes split and
migrate to alternate poles. This is the complete prototype new
human. The zygote then splits into four cells and
forms a tetrahedron inside a sphere. The next division yields
a star tetrahedron/cube in a shape called 'the egg of life'.

These eight cells reside at the perineum - our centre
(geometrically) and literally where we grow from. And an
important esoteric plexus, besides, on which our energy field
fixates. Anyway, eight cells divide into eight more, form a cube
within a cube. After this, divisions become asymmetrical as we
differentiate in all the tiny special little ways that make us, well,
special! At sixty-four cells the embryo becomes hollow and the
poles grown together and form a tube torus, one end of which
will be the mouth, the other, the anus.
So, to sum up: life begins as an ovum or sphere, becomes a
tetrahedron, then a star tetrahedron, a cube, another sphere,
and finally, a torus.

(note: the symbol of Gratitude is a tube torus, too! wow!)


Day 5


Imagine ...

As (k)newly born beings,
we begin by first receiving,
accepting a naturally abundant source of support
~ the Breath of Life ~
only to immediately return this gift ...

and then begin again.

Give and Receive

Accept and Release

In and Out

Beginning to End

Our breath is a constant companion,

guide, and connection to Life.

o it is, too, with Gratitude!


Go Gratitude!


Now ...

breathe deeply, as if this is the One,

the beginning, the first breath connecting

You to Now.

Upon release, imagine a state of purity

returning to all creation - this breath

imbued with innocence, Divinity, and Gratitude,

gifted to all by a (k)newly born YOU

Gratitude Breath Meditation

Fill your heart with compassion and gratitude by practicing this
simple meditation. Begin by inhaling deeply through the nose
and exhaling completely through the mouth; then, inhale
through the mouth and exhale completely through the nose.
As you proceed, meditate on the mantra Saat Naam
(True Identity). ~ source: Yogi Tea

~ Aligning with the Heart's calling and Embracing the

You sat on your bench again - yeah!!
Reborn every day - isn't it a chance to start over every day. A 70's thought comes to mind - 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life.'
Breathing brings meditation to mind for me. Breathing more deeply helps me relax.
These two concepts I can except quite readily.
