60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday: Grateful Heart Come What May
by Diane Wyzga | November 2, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Eggenfelden, Bavaria, Germany!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday.
Many years ago I took part in a sweat lodge purification ceremony facilitated by a Lakota shaman who taught this prayer:
“Good morning guides, guardians and Grace, Mother Earth, Father Sky, Creator of all, above and below, within and without, furred and feathered, creeping, crawling, 2-legged, 4-legged, rooted and flying ones, those that swim and me. Thank you for rest and leading me out of Dreamtime to live another day – with a grateful heart – come what may.”
This last part is the most important because as your day rolls along there will be annoyances, aggravations, and inconveniences. When they occur – as they most definitely will – pause and repeat this, “with a grateful heart come what may.” It’ll save you a lot of unnecessary grief. Guaranteed!
Question: How do you save yourself unnecessary grief?
