As I grow spiritually, the more I become grateful for simple, but priceless moments.
The picture I took barely show its full beauty, but I had the privilege of watching the sunset for hours when I left New York for California. I normally book aisle seats, but on my return, I opted for a window seat, and I was given this beautiful, amazing gift.
As it grew darker, I was shown a rainbow skyscape from red at the horizon to purple at its zenith.
I would never have seen such beauty had I not booked a window seat. Clearly, the Big G wanted me to see this. 😁
I have not been posting much, and there is a good reason for it.
I was at a spiritual retreat recently undergoing intense meditation and training–where I was in constant state of bliss and peace.
Coming back from it, this time around, was quite jarring for me. I am having difficulty balancing my spiritual life with my “real” life. The clarity that the retreat gave me had me question things in my life, and it’s hard to find (maybe face) all the answers–while battling a bad cold and working on a new project at work.
Please bear with me as I figure a few things out and find my balance. I plan on introducing a new 365 Day Project as well.

A good friend, J, shared this quote with me a few days ago, and I was reminded of it again today.
If we could just change our perspective or how we see things, we are reminded that we are all, in this life, helping each other out. Whether we are learning a lesson (so we can become better people) from or with someone or we help someone else… We are just “walking each other home.”
“The real kindness comes from within you.”
Let’s spread the kindness like there’s no tomorrow! 😁
I am grateful to have learned about how meditation works on our physiology and the seven states of meditation.
It takes only 1% percent of our 24 hours, which comes to 14.4 minutes, to bring growth and positive changes into our lives. Wow!

I ended up sleeping in due to watching movies rather than sleeping on my flight and from playing in the rain… I love the rain…
So I ended up eating a local favorite for lunch! Fish Fry! Look at the size of the fish!
I also had Birch Beer, because I have never had it before. The server had given me a taste of it before I committed to it. It is a stronger flavored root beer.
Besides a long delay at the airport due to the weather, I was grateful for the easy red-eye flight which I spent watching movies rather than sleeping. 😁 The most coolest part was that I was able to do an act of kindness on the plane.
I was grateful to easily acclimate to the mid-size automatic rental car (I’ve only have had small, manual 2-door sports cars) with some cool gadgetry, and my drive was relatively easy–eventhough sometimes the car felt so big!
I’ve also managed to figure out my way around so I know where all the cool places to eat now. 😉
Even at a small Asian Cafe that serves Artisanal Mexican Cola with their dishes.
