The Answer Is: Heart
by Dj Brown

To know gratitude is but our first step
in achieving it?
For Truly:
What is gratitude if we do not know?
How can we know if we do not seek?
What good is seeking if we do not see?
How do we see if we look and mistake surface for substance?
What will we discern of substance if we do not live from the heart?

Sitting in the cool speckled shadows of shade the master and student sat and the master answered questioning eyes as such. "It is of heart I speak. It is with heart one might listen to see the truth of what is. Heart is the soil in which the Beloved Breath planted the seeds of our humanity and as such, the spiritual beings we are took form to experience and advance the Universal Consciousness. Together with heart we shall come together as one voice caring for the whole of our humanity. It is of heart I speak. It is heart one might listen discerning the substance of these words. Thus, tending the soil the Beloved planted, we willingly accept our stewardship in humanity as the spiritual guardians we are." It is when we live from the heart, seeing, feeling, hearing, touching with heart, we come to know gratitude in its most genuine form.

Master, how do we see if we look and mistake surface for substance? Dear one, we see with each heart beat. Look from the vantage of observer instead of judge.

Master, what good is seeking if we do not see? A seeker sees as one in want of the moment. One tuned to the nature of innocent self.

Master, how can we know if we do not seek? The master held out his hand and when the student laid his upon it; he knew. He felt it, in his heart.

Master, what is gratitude if we do not know? To know one must be heart, all heart. Opening and filling self until self beats in time with the Beloved Breath. Gratitude is that which fills our cup, spills over into thanksgiving that spills over into love.

The sun is shining somewhere. Somewhere the moon is always rising. Always somewhere is someone who's hungry, homeless, lost or forgotten. Let us take leave by dedicating our every breath in prayer for those in need. Those hurting and in need of a healing and especially those whose hearts have become hardened to the loving gratitude we are all capable of. As such, let us part in peace.
