I awaken from sleep, and I realize that another day has arrived–a day filled with the blessings of life. I breathe in, grateful for the Life within me. Before my feet hit the floor, I know that God is within me, expressing as me, touching the lives of everyone I see, and they respond to that Presence in both of us, no matter what the difference is in our beliefs. We are One. In that Oneness, I live, and move and have my being. The challenges of living are met with a sense of inner joy, knowing that I can never be alone. Blessings!
God bless the Life that is in, around, and through each and every person. Life is the breath. God is present with us in every second, and we bless that awareness. There is nowhere we can go where God is not–unless we choose to exclude That One Power of Life. Life is the Dance. Bless that awareness in each reader.

Wopila is a word I learned from a man with a sign on the street. I asked him what it meant and he said “Many Thanks”. I looked it up further and I found that it is Lakota for “thanks given for all of existence and the blessing inherent in each moment of it.” Often used in ceremony, and as a broad statement of thanks within a community. (definition from Wiktionary)
Many thanks for the blessings of this community that you are building Cynthia!

In the vast opening of space and time, where all possibility exists and there is a multitude of miracles, I speak from a heart broken wide open with gratitude for the many blessings being poured into our lives. This flow is deeper and wider than the ocean. Our every need is met and as we embrace the wholeness of our gratitude, our lives can only deepen and become richer. We are fulfilled. Since we are fulfilled, we can easily and readily share our riches with one another and thus we are in flow with the Divine Law of Circulation, a Law to which we are all accountable.
It is with this knowledge that I gratefully and humbly submit to the Divine Will and faithfully know that all is well.
It is done now.
And so it is!
