Day 20 - The Highest Love Is Grace
“Love is such a deep gratitude. When you are truly in love with life, every breath you take is gratitude.” ― Bryant McGill
Today’s meditation shows us how to harness the power of gratitude to guide our spiritual transformation. We are used to relying on our ego mind to make major life choices, but the vision and guidance of our separate self is always constrained by our past and our limited understanding that sees the world in terms of differences. The guiding grace of our higher self is not restricted by the past or our limited knowledge. Grace sees the differences in the world as integrated parts of one wholeness.
We feel this grace personally as a kind of divine love. This loving state of grace connects us, fulfills us, delights us, transforms us, and awakens us to that elevated state of divine consciousness.
1. Write about a time when you felt transformed by someone’s love. Perhaps you were a child and didn’t even realize it at the time. Think about how that unconditional love and acceptance allowed you to grow in ways you wouldn’t have otherwise.
2. Now, compose a short letter of gratitude to the person who gave you unconditional love, and thank them for showing you the power of grace.
3. List three people you feel are messengers of grace in your life. Describe how you will let them know this.
4. Use this space to reflect further on your experience today.
