WHO THANKS? A COSMIC MIRRORING OF THANKITUDE

We are a way for the cosmos to know itself. Carl Sagan
We are mirrors of cosmic thankitude. Mobius

Our ordinary understanding of gratitude points to a someone who is thankful for something. We are thankful for our health, our families, our friends, our lives. But if we dance closer to our experience of gratitude and begin to feel what fills us, we can dissolve into the galactic dimensions of Cosmos becoming thankful for itself, a cosmic mirroring of thankitude 🙂
