Why Life Is Always Perfect!

18.37 What seems at first a cup of sorrow is found in the end immortal wine. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 18)

life is

We’re not separate from Life. We are it. We’re generally not conscious of what goes on inside our heads and why we do what we do. Life is the gradual unfolding of our awareness of life itself. Once we realize that, our journey, our Life journey truly begins.

embrace life

The Gita constantly nudges us towards greater awareness of self and of the divine. The two aren’t separate and in fact constitute Life itself. The divine expresses itself through us to experience that which it can’t otherwise. We are a divine expression! With that thought we may embrace life and jump in!

What’s The Highest Knowledge?

18.20 When one sees Eternity in things that pass away and Infinity in finite things, then one has pure knowledge. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 18)

the spiritual

The creator put her essence and signature into her handiwork. These abundant clues clearly point to the spiritual basis for all that we see and experience. We’re living a spiritual life even when we don’t know it! So why not do so consciously and reap the benefits!?

fruits of the spiritual life

The Gita reminds us of our spiritual heritage and destiny. With the spiritual life come the fruits of Spirit:

  • A sweet more friendly nature
  • A natural smile borne of an unassailable faith in God and his goodness
  • A forgiving kind nature
  • A peace beyond mortal understanding
  • A love that culminates in service of others and
  • a joy that’s hard to fathom

What’s The Finest Gift We Can Give?

17.20 A gift is pure when it is given from the heart to the right person at the right time and at the right place, and when we expect nothing in return. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 17)

why?

Why do we give? We give because we want the recipient to love us and appreciate us. God first gave of herself and when we’re attuned to her we’re compelled to give as well. A gift lands softly in its spot when it’s enrobed in love and fulfills the true needs of the receiver. Such a giver requires nothing in return.

the finest gift

A gift of true understanding and of loved filled service to another is the most we can ever give. Most people are crying out to be understood, to be heard. No one can ever be in our shoes so we’re desperate to be appreciated for what we are. A nonjudgmental gift of true listening, one that overflows with love is the finest gift possible.

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM a giver of love and appreciation.
