Day 19 - December Meditations - Self Appreciation

"The greatest gift Life could have made to you is yourself." ~Ernest Holmes

"Lovin' you is easy 'cause your beautiful." -Minnie Ripperton & Richard Rudolph

In the mid seventies Minnie Ripperton released the song Lovin' You (if you've never heard it, you must, pure 70's gold).  Here in Chicago, the Bodhi Spiritual Center sings the chorus of this song "Lovin' you is easy 'cause your beautiful" every sunday to people that have come to service for the first time.  Can you imagine the experience of life you would have if you sang those lyrics to yourself everyday?  That would truly be appreciating the greatest gift Life ever gave you...yourself.  In the act of appreciating self, we instantly shift our awareness and attention and make ourselves more receptive to ALL of the gifts that life is giving us everyday through ourselves and others.

Affirmation: "I appreciate all that I was, am and will be.  I am a beautiful being of the universe!
