Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.– Dr. Ernest Holmes

Omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Life. In this moment, I recognize that
precious Life as my own. It sits at the very center of my being. It encompasses
the very air around me, and every breath I take. It is present in the snowflakes I
watch falling outside my window, and the birds feeding at the bird feeder. For it is
everything – everywhere – all at once. And what a gift it is just to recognize this! I
feel blessed to know that I am sitting here — warm and cozy — in my dwelling.
Blessed by the meal I am about to partake. Blessed by my beloved family and
friends. My body, even with its little maladies, is a great blessing. Right here and
right now I proclaim that I accept the gift of Life! And I choose to spread the
bounty of my individual life in any way I can — through my time, talents, and
tithes. Knowing that as I do so, in the giving, I in turn receive. And in the
receiving, I am able and willing to give again and again. Life is indeed so good,
and I am so blessed. And so it is.
