“I want, I don’t want.
How can one live with such a heart?”
― Margaret Atwood
What would happen if we gave up wanting anything for the holidays? Even more, if we removed wanting from our very being? Could we be satisfied
to live moment to moment in the sheer wonder and gratitude of receiving?
Looking at our life as not something to be achieved and still as a magnificent opportunity to step into Grace with both arms and our own heart opened wide, what then?
In changing my want,
to being steeped in the richness
of being, I am astounded at the gifts
I am graced to receive, not just
at a time of giving, yet in each
moment blessed for me-
to unwrap wonder, over and over...
