Gratitude and Forgiveness – supporting Compassionate Living

Our perspective and our willingness to be vulnerable provides for the space for transformation to happen.

Over the last few years, we have certainly had our challenging times. It can be hard to focus on the good things in life or the gifts brought to us as we endeavor to get past the challenges, roadblocks, or misfortunes we have encountered.

In Lok Hup, a form of moving meditation that is a part of my Tai Chi practice, we have a movement called “Stop the Cart and Ask for Directions.” That is, do we wish to live a thriving life or are we choosing death and decay. I appreciate knowing there is a choice at the start of the set, because moving forward with the patterns provides a step forward to living and thriving. How we approach situations and the heart we bring to them are very important.

Today we are looking at the power of gratitude and forgiveness to release stress and tension in our lives. How can we look at our challenges and celebrate our ability to find the way through? How can we forgive ourselves and others when choices might not have been the best for everyone?

As we bring Charlene Waines into the conversation and her latest activities and support for the Moyo family in Milawi. We will be exploring perspective and heart-centered living. We all need a reality check to return to thriving and healing in our living, join us to find the tips and tools that will take you there.
