Today, pay attention to those moments you can recognize Love or Spirit is shining through into your life. An interaction that feels like a genuine connection. A glimpse of something beautiful - the way the light glints, a striking shape, a flash of color. An act of kindness given, witness, or received. A story that moves you. Some bit of language that delights. Real laughter. Hearty food. A wave of gratitude. These moments are your real life. These moments, more than accomplishments, wealth, formal recognition, make for a rich and satisfying life.
