Happy Veterans Day! This is Monday Medi Moments, our weekly mindfulness lesson and meditation. In light of Veterans Day, we’re meditating on reverence and honor.
To honor Thanksgiving, we’re talking about gratitude all month long. Thanksgiving began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the harvest from the preceding year.
The four principles of gratitude we’re working with this month are:
1. Count your blessings to fully reap the benefits of the seeds you have sown, cultivated, grown, and harvested. Dive deeper into this topic by reviewing May’s Monday Medi Moments here.
2. Have reverence for what you stand on (the harvest), for what you stand for, and for what you stand under. Have reverence for life, for your breath, for what you’re consuming, and all that you have. Have reverence for the things that make us human.
3. Honor what’s important, because what you honor expands in your life. Honoring is an expression of sincerity for the things that matter most in your life. Honor is the expression of reverence.
4. Give thanks for all of your blessings. Acknowledge the past year (what you harvested) and take stock in your year to come. Dive deeper into this topic by reviewing our Monday Medi celebrating Rosh Hashanah here.
What do you stand for? Appreciate the things you love and revere. Honor them by standing for that in your life.
I dedicate this meditation to all veterans including my father, my uncles, and my nephew. I’m forever grateful for your service to our country.
We’ll leave you with the following quote:
“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have.”
– Abraham Lincoln
