The thought for today is REVERENCE. The art and practice of reverence is the intentional and mindful observance of honoring self, others, nature, and source with your unique and perfect expression of gratitude, reciprocity and devotion. The term Ahimsa is inspired by the premise that all living beings have the spark of the divine spiritual energy, to hurt another being is to hurt oneself.
Reverence for all life is fundamental to Ahimsa because all is sacred. How can you willingly do harm to that for which you have reverence.
Reverence nurtures more joy, contentment, and meaning, cultivates gratitude, inspires passionate creativity, kindles deeper connections, sustains greater intimacy, will change your life, our world, and can heal the Earth.
Today open yourself up to a feeling of reverence for all forms of life, especially each and every person you meet during the day. Take a walk outside and experience the beauty that surrounds you as YOU BE with the sky, the plants and animals, as well as your brothers and sisters.
