So Many Reasons to Be Thankful


Love hot weather and cold weather
dry weather and wet weather
love the night and day
love the sun-baked dust
and the cool flowing water
love it all,
and be thrilled with what this life sends you.
With a receptive mind
that knows how to abide in this moment
make the choice to open to whatever arises,
relax into the spacious field of being.
Do not try to fight nature.
How can you skip over winter
and move directly from autumn to spring?
Winter is coming.
You may as well embrace it,
enjoy the contrast of the biting cold
with the gentle warmth that follows.
Let your mind be free
of rigid expectations
and open your eyes to this moment.
So many reasons to be thankful.
