I am grateful for the cold February morning that wakes me too early, because the quickening light asks for my breath and presence.
I am grateful for the inhalation of the gifts of the directions: I call into myself inspiration, creative action, courage and determination, grounding, community, and connection, guidance and nurturing.
I am grateful for the exhalation of that which I desire to let go of: anxiety, fear, laziness, loneliness, isolation.
I am grateful for possibility. For the vast choices before me. For the ability to surrender to the choice that will lead me to my highest purpose.
I am grateful for the flux and flow of my breath. For the Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo centering and calming me, yet also inciting peaceful action.
I am grateful for the sun dissipating the mist outside.
