Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Gratitude: How Many Reasons Do You Have?

One of the Reiki Principles is, "Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings."  Yet so many of us forget the daily practice of giving thanks every day.  

There is a great deal of healing that can come from focusing on the positive gifts in our lives.  Look around you at the beauty in your life . . . the love of friends and family, your health and well-being, your gifts and accomplishments.  Remember to take a moment each day to give thanks for all you have.

I'd like to share a few of my favorite inspirational quotes regarding gratitude.  Not only is there great wisdom in the words, but also something to reflect upon each day.
  • "Enough" is a feast.  Buddhist proverb.
  • Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.  Robert Brault.
  • As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.  John F. Kennedy.
  • Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.  Charles Dickens.
  • Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance. Eckhart Tolle.
  • If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness.  It will change your life mightily.  Gerald Good.
  • Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity . . . it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.  Melody Beattie.

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes.  It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches.  It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day.  What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.  Michael Josephson.
