Today I wake up happy. Not that I am happy about anything in particular. Awareness has permeated my mind. I quietly lie in bed observing the thoughts that pass through my mind. Warm thoughts of friends near and far, that I love and miss dearly, dance in my mind like little children playing in the rain. My thoughts are tender and dear to me.

The beauty of mindful awareness has transformed my mundane hour of laying in bed into something extraordinary and sacred. I realize I am happy. I realize I am at peace. All this has happened because I noticed the gentle thoughts that visited me so early in the morning. Simple thoughts. Gentle thoughts. Happy thoughts.

  1. What a great way to start the morning. It reminds me of the Bible admonition in Philippians 4:8-9 passage, “whatever is true, pure, lovely, praiseworthy, etc., think about such things…and the God of peace will be with you.”
    What you have said is a reminder to me to take time to enjoy the good thoughts and feelings before I rush off to do the “musts”.
